There are so many ways to do tofu that it's hard to say what that recipe used without at least seeing it.
I marinate and bake tofu without a breading, typically. But you can prep it like you would breaded baked chicken (I'm guessing on the exact technique from childhood watching mom cook chicken and helping her out sometimes, and from watching cooking shows, as I've been a vegetarian since age 14), certainly. I'm just not sure what was done in this particular case.
