Yes, I think so.

From the specification for the exec option:
Each invocation shall begin after the last pathname in the set is aggregated, and shall be completed before the find utility exits and before the first pathname in the next set (if any) is aggregated for this primary, but it is otherwise unspecified whether the invocation occurs before, during, or after the evaluations of other primaries.

I can't see the point of the "-ls" switch in this context.

find /directory/ -type f -exec cksum {} \;

For listing, he used -ls instead of -print. I hope so.
