Is a "Knowledge Graph" an "ontology with a large ABox"?

Most of the knowledge graphs that I know about don't really have much of an 
ontology, and I would argue that some don't have an ontology at all (unless 
you think that a DB schema is an ontology).  I would argue that Freebase, for 
example, doesn't have an ontology and doesn't even have semantic typing.
