Is downloading an object from a bucket via public url from a Google instance charged?

I would like to upload images to a bucket, and use a google VM Instance to download the image / edit it on the fly and serve it.
The outgoing traffic from the VM is already paid, do I also have to calculate the bandwidth from google cloud storage to the VM? Or being in the same network is not paid? In the documentation I found "Accessing data in an EU bucket with an EU-WEST1 GKE instance. - Free" does the same also apply to Custom VM instances?

The free  Network egress applies to “Accessing data in an EU bucket with the  Custom VM instances located in one EU region “ as “Data moves from a Cloud Storage bucket located in a multi-region to a different Google Cloud service located in a region, and both locations are on the same continent.”Custom VM instances is the GCP services, and located in the the EU region and within Europe continent.
