No.  frame.c initializes the default scroll bar position as follows:

      DEFVAR_LISP ("default-frame-scroll-bars", &Vdefault_frame_scroll_bars,
                   doc: /* Default position of scroll bars on this 
window-system.  */);
    #if defined(HAVE_NTGUI) || defined(MAC_OS)
      /* MS-Windows has scroll bars on the right by default.  */
      Vdefault_frame_scroll_bars = Qright;
      Vdefault_frame_scroll_bars = Qleft;
      Vdefault_frame_scroll_bars = Qnil;

I guess this is done to be consistent with the defaults of the
respective window-system.
