Don't we effectively still have 4K VLAN limit with VXLAN? [closed]

I understand one of the big advantage of VXLAN is that it increases the number of VLAN ids (VNI) to 16 Million. However, if my understanding is correct , internally Neutron — at least with OpenvSwitch -- still uses traditional VLAN IDs (internal VLAN <-> VXLAN id mapping is done by flowtables in br-tun, br-int bridges) to separate tenant networks, don’t you still end up with 4K VLAN restriction even with VXLAN support?
