You are correct. Our plan is to (optionally) make select parts of the
filesystem persistent  with the data saved on a second, encrypted
partition on the USB drive Tails is installed to. This is finally
planned for inclusion in the next major Tails release, which is
scheduled for release in late April.
 Examples: email/IM configurations, gpg/ssh/otr keyrings/configs, Tor
cache (for entry guards), a general data storage. For more, see:
