No, or at least, I sure hope not.

Tor clients choose relays for the HSDir positions based on the
networkstatus consensus, as signed by the directory authorities.

Tor clients, even ones using bridges, never see the networkstatus
document that Tonga generates. It is only used by bridgedb and by
the metrics project.
