Not exactly. It says:

    The prefixes in the first column of the chart (headed “none”) are
    used when there is no object; that is, when the action of the verb
    affects only the subject (the “doer”). The verb {Qong} sleep occurs
    with the pronomial prefixes as follows...

This doesn't say that {Qong} can't take objects; it only tells us how 
{Qong} with no objects uses prefixes.
