Default Hybrid assembling using PacBioToCA?

This may be a silly question. I know PacBioToCA can be used to correct PacBio long reads by alignment from, for example, Illumina short reads. Then the corrected PacBio reads can be assembled, for example, by Celera assembler. Is this "hybrid" assembly?
In this pipeline, illumina reads are only used for error correction, but not used in assembling? Should both PacBio reads and illumina reads be used in Celera for assembling as "hybrid" assembly?
