I think your conclusion is pretty sound.

The cases where I have seen this certification make a difference were all people working within a company who were trying to get that company to pay more attention to UX (and to take them seriously as someone who could do that). It gave them a little respect for having gone after the training to get started, and helped make the case to their manager.

These were all people trying to shift or expand the focus of their work, while staying in the same company. (Look at me differently) And they were pretty traditional companies, so you might want to think this in terms of your situation.
