No. Branches live in refs/heads/ while tags live in refs/tags/.
If you have a branch and tag with the same name, some git commands will
require you to disambiguate (for example `git merge <name>` will be
ambiguous -- disambiguation is achieved using e.g. `git merge
refs/heads/<name>`). However this is not the case for `git branch -d`.
Hope that makes it clearer,
