BAT rewards custody

I am trying to understand how the BAT i earn from ads is held. After researching it, it seems that the BAT are never actually transferred to me until i verify an account with uphold and claim them from the brave team.. is this really true? At no point before that do i have my hands on the tokens i earned? There is a recovery key but that is supposedly meaningless. Putting that into a third party wallet yields nothing. I'm a little bemused, it cannot possibly work like this, as they say not your keys not your crypto.
