Yes, you did misunderstand (or I provided an inappropriate
explanation): you need to insert the hex code directly into the style

That means you need to open the style file with a hex editor, find the
byte between ${ref|highway-symbol:oval} and ${name}, and change the
byte to the hex equivalent of 1f.

I don't know if it will work properly here, but it might be worth
trying. As I said, this is how we initially tested out the highway
symbols function.
