Does "that people tend to be risk-averse when considering potential gains and risk seeking when considering potential losses" mean "that people tend to be risk-averse when considering potential gains and (tend to be) risk seeking when considering potential losses"?

Thanks in advance

Put this way, a majority of respondents will now favor Program B. And yet there
is no material or moral difference between these two scenarios, because their outcomes
are the same. What this shows is that people tend to be risk-averse when considering
potential gains and risk seeking when considering potential losses
, so describing the same
event in terms of gains and losses evokes different responses.
