No it is not - a mole (also an english word) is a solid pier - it is
masonry/stone/concrete structure that is built on the seabed & has the
function of a pier. The important difference is that a mole projects
from the land like a pier, & is not part of the land like a wharf/quay.
Beware of local misnaming of all of these structures.
