Well, yes : it is not written in API and to me this symbol is an API symbol (I know it is used in Sami also) but...No,
I see where you're going and it is true that Unicode scripts unify symbols used by many writing systems and thus languages.ŋ is primarily used for writing several languages. It is as much an IPA symbol than a or b. And ŋ is part of the script, Latin, used by the French language, just like this letter is part of the script used by the Tamil language. That doesn't mean that either French or Tamil ever uses these letters.
