No, you don’t have to glue the tenon into the top. If the top is heavy enough and the fit of the M&T is good enough, it’ll be just fine with just the weight of the top. My current bench is designed as a knockdown and the top is held in place by the tenons and some lag screws from the bottom. In reality, I’m not sure the lags are necessary, but since I did stub tenons (only 1in long) and not through tenons, the lags are a bit of security.
