R_386_RELATIVE question

Hello. I've got a question about the purpose of R_386_RELATIVE relocation
Here's a part of disassemble of a library, built as follows:
g++ -fPIC -c test.cpp -o test.o
g++ -shared -Wl,-q -o libtest.so test.o

At 0x1bcc there is a R_386_RELATIVE relocation, and the data in this address
is 0x1c08, which is an address of __dso_handle. As far as I understand, it's
not the job of R_386_RELATIVE to fix the value, so there should have been a
linker relocation on 0x1bcc, pointing to 0x1c08. Am I right? (There is no
other relocation on 0x1bcc besides R_386_RELATIVE)
Thanks in advance
