Yes, it means that cheese is made from the curd. However, it's not really cheese is made of cheese. Cheese is made from curd - or curd in a different state. Ice and water and steam are all the "same" except that each one exists at a different temperature. So to say cheese is made of cheese omits the fact that the curd has to be heated and compressed to become cheese.
