Since they're asking specifically if you've had DUI, better to say yes. Your parsing of the language isn't going to be pursuasive to your employer if they find out you have a DUI conviction.
Unfortunately, yes. If the question is asked, it must be answered truthfully, or you can risk termination in the future for lying on an application.
In addition, if this is a state or federal employment application, there are criminal penalties that attach if you knowingly lie or leave out certain material information like convictions..
You can "get away" with it only if they do not verify the information, as the query is pretty clear and that you are a DUI X-convict is pretty clear. The only truthful answer would be "yes."
