Yes. From the machine:


This is from a Commodore 16. It is the only machine in my collection
with such mask ROM and factory-made Hungarian keyboard. The rest of the
text on the chip reads (C)1985 CBM , datecode 2985; on the bottom side,
TAIWAN ; GH283104 ; 5 . Looks like they made a production run of the
localized Kernal rom, after having made the deal. The rest of the chips
on the board all appear to have been manufactured late 1984, which
suggest they already had a stock of populated PAL Commodore 16 boards,
and probably only needed to replace the Kernal chip before final assembly.

Yeah, definitely.
