Yes, that seems to be the case. It will keep for a long time... and the longer the better, because you can strain off the oil later and use it as eggplant flavored oil. If you would like that kind of thing.

Preservation generally prevents the growth of bacteria and / or fungi. The oil excludes air (and organisms) but you generally need to treat the vegetable also.
See these?

(note the use of salt as a preservative)
