Does that mean convolution reverbs are more like reverb samplers, so-to-speak, while other reverb plug-ins are reverb simulators?

Anyone??

That's a good way to characterize it. That's not to say, however, that algorithmic reverbs are inferior, many sound fantastic. But if you're trying to add reverb that accurately reproduces the reflections of a specific space--the back seat of a Cadillac or the third row at Carnegie Hall--a convolution reverb is the tool to use.
