I don't think so, there are lots of cases when users could/should use
- I once asked here explicitly whether I was allowed to close bugs as
  non-developer and was told that it was ok for me to close my own
  bugreports and tag others as fixed that I had verified as already
  fixed.  (Of course I've to document properly why and how...)
- If I as a user add a bugfix (patch) to the BTS it'll be perfectly
  sensible to add this tag to the bug, too.
- If a developer closes a bug and I find a new test case that shows
  the bug was not fixed properly I'll reopen the bug.
- If I add a duplicate bugreport I'll merge it. (This can happen even
  if you use reportbug properly and check the BTS before you start
  writing the bugreport, it takes some the time to compose it.)
- etc.
