I'm pretty sure you're right. According to the Natural History Museum website, they bite.
'Felt like a puncture from a bramble thorn. Site of the bite slightly raised and white (no reddening). Pain gone after 6 hours.'
'Pain like an electric shock from finger to elbow with the arm going numb; recovered after a few hours.'
'Itchiness and hot feeling on arm, large red patch (2" x 4") became worse within hour, plus white lumps; horrible burning feeling - felt bruised for some days.'
I've never been bitten by one, but I don't think I'll experiment...
