True. Am on the narrow-heel S-Works 6 XC standard-width.

A few of the Lake models with the Competition last also have a round-shaped front, but are a touch wider in standard widths. Heel fit generally wider.

I've found it a good idea to find overhead pics of models to compare toe-box shape.
For example you can see with the high-end Shimano shoes they cut back a little around the side/toe edge (narrower), compared to the Spesh and Lake round-front models.

Bont also have round fronts but from what I've read they're best suited for higher arch.
