Socket Count?

For the Paid subscriptions how does the Socket count work, If I had some machines that have a 2S motherboard but only one CPU installed (I.e the 2nd socket is empty) Do I need to license them as 2S systems?
According to the website: The subscription model is based on the number of physical servers and their occupied CPU sockets. So I assume that you don't have to pay for sockets that have no CPU in it.
