No, not in general.

An arithmetic context is created in (at least!) the following
situations (copied from
<https://mywiki.wooledge.org/BashProgramming/05#Arithmetic_Expansion>):
* The $(( )) arithmetic substitution.
* The let or (( )) command.
* The index inside [ ] in an indexed array variable expansion.
* The start and length parameters in ${parameter:start:length} substitution.
* The [[ command with -gt or other numeric operators.
The deprecated $[ ] substitution falls into the same category as the
currently supported $(( )) syntax.
The [ character has several different meanings depending on where
and how it's used. It doesn't always indicate a math context. It's
also used for character classes in globs and regular expressions.
