Not necessarily. Indeed, they do quote the name chu: with STRETCHED
C, and with both diacritics, the TILDE for nasalization (which is
standard) and the CARON BELOW for the rising tone (which is not). So
Pullum and Ladusaw are *using* Doke's orthography. If they wanted to
show a different word in that orthography they would have to use one
of Doke's other letters.

Big world, isn't it? There's all those non-Slavic Cyrillic characters
which haven't turned up again either.
