"US 52 FOLLOWS I 94" to me means they are concurrent, even if Minnesota
only has signs for I94 instead of I94/US52
So it is a matter of presentation, not facts.

Here in Florida there are places where most signs list only one name, but
periodically there will be references to other names sharing the same
