No, since you might not be installing on a real system but a temporary
location to build a package or for some other reason. Also if you
are not running as root but with fakeroot ldconfig will fail.

No, it should not. DESTDIR is only used when installing files on the
filesystem to put them in a different location. This can be a temporary
location when building a package, or a chroot environment, but not
something you will see when running the application.
