That's a good point. A dog turning her back to another dog could be calming herself or just plain avoiding challenging behavior. If a dog really felt that she had to 'prove' submission, then she'd be more likely to be more demonstrative about that, licking the other dog's muzzle, rolling over on her back.

'Balanced' dogs who know their place in the pack order really try not to let things develop into dramatic circumstances and so avoid confrontation and huge gestures one way or the other.
