Yes, it just effects the defaults. As a client you can do whatever you
want. This was discussed almost a month back in this thread.

Relevant snippet:
Despite its name, the BadExit flag really isn't a big whoop - the
relays are still perfectly usable for guard and middle hop positions.
They just aren't seeing exit traffic any longer.

No, the flag effects the default behavior for clients. Clients pick
nodes with the BadExit flag for the middle or guard positions, but
never as an exit.
