Yes.  However, this works because bookmark-bmenu-load calls
bookmark-load via call-interactively, and the latter is sensitive to the prefix argument. So the doc string of bookmark-load should also
be improved by mentioning the effect of the prefix argument.

My inclination would be to do this by having `bookmark-bmenu-load' just refer readers to `bookmark-load', and then improving the latter's doc string. That way if future changes are made to `bookmark-load's behavior, we wouldn't need to remember to update `bookmark-bmenu-load's doc string too.
