Yes. If you don't subscribe to tethering then you should never be using that authentication method and your usage for that account should be zero. It would be trivial for them to figure out who is tethering based on the usage logs and feature list alone.
In fact, I've seen evidence (but haven't verified) that if you subscribe to tethering those data bytes will show up as a separate "Tethering Usage" line item in the "My Verizon" app on the data details screen... it's just hidden for everyone else.
