They could bear that interpretation. However the correct interpretation
is that they are seperate tribes, at least according to Drastic Prax.

        Despite its common name, there are actually four distinct
        "subtribes" within the Pol Joni. Three Pol Joni clans are
        known, and they were the first people to enter Prax. There
        are two Amber clans, an Ansil clan, and a Potor clan each
        with their own story. None of these later groups claims
        any relation to the Pol Joni, but outsiders (including most
        Sartarites) group them all as part of a single tribe.
