That's not punishment, I don't think; she doesn't act like it bothers her, and there's really no way touching her gently there hurts her. But, I could see how you could do basically the same action and call it the same thing but do it in a painful way.
If Bandit is really distracted I do that too. Not stern or loud, just a firm "sit" and if he ignores the command, I will gently place my hand above his tail and he instantly sits. Sometimes he does respond better to a physical cue versus a verbal one. Doesn't mean it has to be harsh though.
