This would appear to make sense, as the 1946 Car Builders Cyclopedia shows drawings for only three types of box car roofs, all manufactured by Standard Railway Equipment Manufacturing Co. with the following descriptions for the portions between the stamped edge seams:  the "Murphy Improved Riveted Roof" with a single raised panel per sheet; the "Murphy Welded Roof" with two raised panels per sheet; and the "Standard Pressed Steel Roof" with flat panels.
