That is, scripts may still attempt direct POST attacks against /wp-login.php, but without the correct reCAPTCHA data, they will not go through (even if they have guessed the login and password correctly). To prevent repeat attempts against /wp-login.php, consider using a plugin that limits login attempts in conjunction with this one.
