No. It doesn't say that at all. Quoting 

Emphasis provides a method for indicating that certain text should be 
stressed in some way.

Processing expectations

Formatted inline. Emphasized text is traditionally presented in italics 
or boldface. A Role attribute of bold or strong is often used to 
generate boldface, if italics is the default presentation.

Emphasis is often used wherever its typographic presentation is desired, 
even when other markup might theoretically be more appropriate.
