If I understand the question correctly ...

In this case, as I understand, the stereo on camera mic becomes mono (L+R) - is it right?

I record almost all of my interviews in mono.
Often I have a wireless into one channel and a boom mic that will pick up more room noise into the second channel, so I can use both channels later in the mix.
In my final mix, the voice is always mono, usually I output in surround sound.
