Well sometimes. The term breadcrumb of course originally (and still 
sometimes) refers to the other usage of being an indication of the 
navigation route taken to the current page, cf Hansel and Gretel: the 
path through through the wood was probably more linear than hierarchical 
in nature.

Wikipedia gives both usages:

Breadcrumbs typically appear horizontally across the top of a web page, 
often below title bars or headers. They provide links back to each 
previous page the user navigated through to get to the current page 
or—in hierarchical site structures—the parent pages of the current one
