Yes, all of the gear change engagement/disengagement actions take place inside with those dogs. The gears themselves remain constantly meshed with each other.
I see in your pic that one of those dog sets have the edges worn off, but I'm blind as a bat so I'm gonna let someone else make the call... I can't see some things in photos... I struggle with details like that. Gettin' old sucks.
A note about worn dogs... if one set of dogs is worn/damaged then the part that it slides into & mates with will be worn/damaged too. Always replace both worn parts at the same time.
