No, it is class 02:

  :signature packet: algo 17, keyid 7AFD668F50F3F076
        	     version 3, created 976244265, md5len 5, sigclass 02
		     digest algo 2, begin of digest 6f d2
		     data: [158 bits]
		     data: [159 bits]

   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.
