No. Actually in the case of the Debian lists, Charlie got it right:

Non-subscribers are welcome to post to Debian mailing lists
and are treated (as far as I can see) the same way as subscribers.

Normally, when responding to a mail in a mailing list, the
response goes only to the list. If you are not subscribed,
you won't see that response. So in this case, it makes sense
to say "hey, I'm not subscribed, so please send me a copy
(that is: cc me)"
