Bolt Torque on 2008 LS3 Oil Pan

I have a very slight oil leak coming from the oil pan gasket area. On page 9-594 of the service manual it shows a bolt tighting diagram. If I am reading this correct, the 2 rear bolts are torqued to 106 lb in and the rest are torqued to 18 lb ft.
I just want to confirm that this is correct before I put a torque wrench on them.........just don't want to break a bolt or strip out the block.

Thank you for your help.
