No you are not right.
You should include runtime_tools in the cean prod distribution as well.

The dbg module and other stuff in runtime_tool does not make use of
debug_info in the beam files.

Tracing (which dbg is an interface for) is totally unrelated to
debugging which the debugger does and which used the debug_info chunk
in the beam files.
For tracing no specific compiler options are required, you use it on
production code.
