This sounds more like the second-half of Faux Yay. does it really need to be its own trope?

Yes, because it's not only quite a common thing to do, but it doesn't actually require any "Yay" at all. That is, there doesn't have to be a single hint of homoeroticism. More importantly, this trope isn't about the idea that the character is gay, or that that idea is wrong. It's about what the character does to dispel the false belief.

The second-half of Faux Yay sounds more like an intentional Mistaken for Gay for the sake of the audience.
