Final on subfins

Now that I have noticed that the starboard tailplane LE is extended forward, I think the large bullet fairing at the fin/tail join hides a hydraulic ram, which can trim the sibfins left or right during water pick-up. This would enable the pilot to trim out a crosswind without having to use the main "barn door" rudder.

Am I right? Does anyone know?
