No, it's probably bench bleeding tubes. The master cylinder should come with directions on how to bench bleed it. You might also want a vacuum bleeder kit, but you should read the directions because bubbles in the lines on a vacuum bleeder are not a cause for alarm. It will actually pull air through the threads on the bleeder nipple.

Open up your new master cylinder and read the directions. Haynes Manuals are meant to confuse people and scare them into taking cars to a mechanic instead of actually giving customers technical knowledge of vehicles and systems. It makes the manual easier to write.
