No, that is not correct.

What decides what version of the GPL covers your code is what you put in the 
README or in the source files themselves.

If you put there "Licensed under the GPLv2" it's v2 only, no matter what the 
COPYING file itself says, because that's just an explanation on how to license 
your code.
