Clarification on Post Load Capacity/Laying

Hello~

I was hoping to get some clarification on the building of a wooden pathway. I was following a basic outline(link posted below--regarding 'photo #6') but when it comes to the 4x4 posts..it appears they are not attaching the vertical increase or next section to the posts..simply laying it on top of the previously attached side and rear joist?

Is this structurally sound? Doesn't seem logical to me that only 1 side of each section after the initial is secured down. Maybe I'm missing something.

Guidance is appreciated!
