No, it is not true. While they do have plastic buttons, the collars are much nicer (not sure if fused or not), there is no breast pocket or box pleat.
However, and most importantly, the cloth they use is on a whole other level. If I was rating cotton quality and weaving on a 1-10 scale, the BB mainline (iron) would probably rate around a 3 while the luxury line is closer to an 8.
If you want MOP buttons, check out the BF line. I have a few of those shirts and (no matter what you think of Tom Browne) they are pretty nice shirts. I even bought a few for my girlfriend and she loves them.
