That's correct. It's still important to mark the highway features with
bridge=yes so that database users will know that the road or path is on a
bridge. Drawing the man_made=bridge outline is a way to map the area and
shape of the bridge itself, but it doesn't affect the rivers and roads
around it.

Sometimes a layer tag is needed. For simple bridges this is not really
necessary, though most editors prompt you to add it for consistency.
