B is also assumed but implicitly.
The context is as follows. We know that both "A" and "B" are assumed. But compared with "A", the assumption "B" is only implicit.

It is correct, but I doubt it is formal. You know, the online dictionaries love to explain adverbs in a format like this "in a [adjective] way". So, why not try to replace it in your sentence and it can be read as "B is also assumed but in an implicit way", which sounds totally fine.
