TYPE_new() and TYPE_free()

Assuming that I use the ASN1_SEQUENCE, ASN1_SEQUENCE_END,

TYPE_free() says that it frees all sub-objects.  Can I
assume that, if the sub-objects are also defined
with those macros, that it will iterate all the way?

TYPE_new() allocates the object.  Does it set
all the pointers to NULL, and iterate down
through sub-structure - so that the free is safe?
