Yes, but running 16 ohms on an 8 ohm impedance select doesn't cause the same voltage rise as running no load. If you're worried about over voltage on the OT the trick is to run a chain of power diodes in parallel with the secondary windings. That way it can't actually happen. But yes, it does seem to give the valves a harder time, and so you get power amp distortion at a far lower output.
