Yes, that's true. Urine is sterile, except for any bacteria it may pick up from around the external urinary tract opening, which is why doctors ask humans to wipe themselves really well down there, then collect a midstream sample if they need to check you for a UTI.
However, it DOES smell, and will stain the fur. Doesn't he lift his leg to pee? How young was he when he was neutered?
I'm willing to bet he was neutered quite young, which is probably why this habit developed.
