Yep. You insert the disc into Xbox One, Xbox One X, Series S (if there is a disc-drive Series S model, some rumors it may be digital only), or Series X, and your system installs the relevant files for the version of your console. You put this disc in XB1, it just installs the game. You put it into Series X, it installs the XB1 version then a patch that contains the upgraded graphical assets for the Series X version.

The bad part would be all games needing downloads to have the better visual on XSX.

I suppose Series X assets would be on disc already. That's exactly how Xbox One/One X is being handled right now. Some games can have additional One X assets and if you install the game on One S or Xbox One it picks lower definition assets and if you install it on One X, it picks higher definition assets. The executable file itself is universal. The same would apply for Series X. Just one more tier of assets is gonna be added. That's what that "Smart Delivery" thing is about. And that's what makes it different from plain free upgrade like on Playstation consoles. If you buy a PS4 game on disc and want to move to PS5 later, you will have to either install PS4 B/C version from disc or redownload the whole PS5 version of the game through internet. The disc won't have a PS5 version of the game in any capacity. Also, it is still a question what happens if you buy PS5 version of the game on disc and try to put it into PS5? Will Sony allow free "downgrade"? Who knows.
