I think of pier and post ... as in a foundation.

Very familiar with this.  I remember many years ago when I was buying a home on the river, the banker called me and said they were going to have to re-evaluate my loan because of the post and pier foundation.  "What?  We have a full concrete foundation", I said.  Turns out the appraiser did the house down the street.  Goofball.

simply stated, a pier is a structural member.... whether it be on a bridge or dock or a deck/porch....
