UseEntryGuardsAsDirGuards defaults to 1 in torrc.

So if you did not change this default you will use entry guards for
tunneling directory connections.

That doesn't seem to be the case. Tor from TBB 5.0 startup (directory
info was a couple of days old):

[GUARD]     xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:443  received: 17967   sent: 12865
[dizum]  received: 564549  sent: 19078
[Faravahar]   received: 253909  sent: 55616
[maatuska]      received: 132954  sent: 28519
[tor26]      received: 370630  sent: 80132

There were no other connection attempts.
