No, it is class 02:

0x02: Standalone signature.
This signature is a signature of only its own subpacket
contents. It is calculated identically to a signature over
a zero-length binary document. Note that it doesn't make
sense to have a V3 standalone signature.
Because there is no notation data or something similiar, I don't
understand for what this signature should be good.
