Yes, technically "braze-on" applies only to steel frames. Some front derailers require a mounting bracket to be attached to the seat-tube. For steel bikes, this bracket is often brazed on. For aluminum, titanium, and carbon bikes, it is not brazed on, but the term "braze-on" is still used anyway. Wonder why they don't just say "bracket mount" or something.
