No, lilypond will never put a blank page at the end. You could probably
achieve that in a pdf editor.

If you make blank-last-page-force large and use ly:page-turn-breaking, then
lilypond will be unlikely to produce a score where the last page is
odd-numbered. Instead, it will adjust the spacing in order to use one page
more or fewer.
