That is correct, same as with albums.
I must re-emphasize this point, because I see there is (at least) one person who keeps adding the secondary genres (with the primary genres in bold) and I hate having to undo all their hard work!

Another thing to note: on RYM, with both albums and songs, there is a lot of redundant tagging (e.g. an album is tagged as both Dream Pop and Alternative Rock, even though Dream Pop is already categorized as a subgenre of Alternative Rock).
