Status field for SFDC contacts

This may be more a SFDC question than a Marketo one, but I recently created a new contact in SFDC because the person was a personal connection.  That contact synced over to Marketo with the "qualified" status.  I did some digging and found out that Marketo "status" maps to SFDC "lead status."  Since this person has no SFDC lead, here is what I'm thinking, and you can either correct me or verify, please:

In SFDC all contacts are assumed to be qualified, hence a status field would be redundant an unnecessary.  Therefore, if no lead exists, but a contact does, SFDC and Marketo default to qualified.

Is that right, or am I missing something?

Thank you in advance,
