Am I right in thinking this planner won't allow routes to go along tracks unless the bicycle=yes tag is present in OSM?

In the UK, yes - highway=track is often used for private tracks (through farms etc.) in OSM that aren’t open to bikes, so cycle.travel won’t route along there unless there’s a bicycle=yes tag (or something that implies it, like designation=public_bridleway).

(In Europe, highway=track is assumed to be open to bikes unless otherwise tagged.)
