Does `amenity=shelter` imply `building=yes`?

The osm wiki page does not suggest `building=*` as a “tag to use in combination”
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity=shelter <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity=shelter>

But most other features which are closed-way structures need the `building=*` tag.  I know it’s a tag used by 3D mapping.  It seems like for consistency, we should add an explicit `building=*` tag.

Asking for https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues/5084 <https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues/5084>

thanks Bryan
