RAW(NEF) converter and chromatic aberration

I am still working on my workflow definition for NEF(RAW) conversion.
I am examining Adobe ACR (embedded with my PSE10) and Nikon View NX2 converter. I still do not have a clear decision, which one gives better result.

But, I have noticed one thing in regard the chromatic aberration.
I am using Nikon D7000 camera, set to take NEF+JPG.

Watching the images in PSE, I can clearly see the aberration in the NEF image, while JPEG looks clear.

Watching the images in View NX2, both NEF and JPEG are without the visible aberration.

D7000 supports the chromatic aberration correction.
My conclusion is that JPEGs look good in both tools, since a camera processed it before the image download. NEF image is by definition uncorrected, but the file
probably contains information needed to remove the aberration, which is I suppose well interpreted by View NX2 and ignored by Adobe ACR.

Could my conclusion be correct, or am I missing something?
