No, what you said before is correct.  Although custom query variables
often involve rewrite rules, they don't necessarily require them, so
the query variable functionality per se does not require one to flush
the rewrite rules.  You would need to flush them once if you're
creating a rewrite rule for that particular custom query variable.
