That sounds correct to me.  I don't know why the man page for REJECT says:

  This target is only valid in the INPUT, FORWARD and OUTPUT chains

It could have excluded the FORWARD chain as well, if that could not be done
cleanly.  Similar limitations are obvious for other modules, such as xt_owner.
