‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).
And yes, a pardon can be (and is, in this case) a retroactive declaration of innocence/persecution. That's the entire point of this. Other times, it's as you say, merely letting someone out of prison before the sentence is over.
