No, it would say that sappenin.com is your OpenID server.
For delegation, there is the seperate openid:delegate-tag.

There is only one step of delegation. The document at gmail.com must
contain the OpenID-server in the URI tag so there is no need to do another
Yadis discovery. Delegation is only a notification to the server to use
another identifier instead of the one given by the user.
Another way would be using a HTTP redirection at gmail.com to sappenin.com
instead of delivering an own XRD document.
