The word column and beam are terms to describe structural members. Beams generally are subjected to flexure while columns are those that carry large axial loads. Since the member you describe does not carry large axial loads but instead is subjected to bending moment then it should be treated as a beam. The main function of ties is to prevent buckling of the reinforcement. Since there is no chance that the reinforcement will buckle in the absence of large axial loads, then there is no need for ties. Structural members should not be designed for their name or call outs but on the nature of forces or loads they are being subjected to.
