looks like you are right. After switching on Wifi-direct on my Samsung it says "scanning" and iwconfig shows the following boring output:

wlan0 AR6K 802.11nag Nickname:""
NWID:off/any Mode:Managed Bit Rate=1 Mb/s Tx-Power=0 dBm
Retry:on RTS thr=0 B Fragment thr=0 B
Power Management:on
Link Quality:255/94 Signal level:-96 dBm Noise level:-96 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

Wifi-Direct is an access point based network which choose its access 
point automatically (and create a new one if necessary). But it doesn't 
allow for multihop communication.
