You are correct.. It had a single containment vessel with secondary building of flammable material.. And yes they used graphite control rods... That being the biggest problem with their design.. Once the core goes critical and ignites the graphite it is tough to put out.
All of which is not allowed in Any US reactors...
Correct. The containment building was actually made out of cinder blocks and a tin roof.
