I think so.  See

| Hi,
| when running `emacs -Q', I was surprised to see site-lisp/*/ in my
| `load-path'.  Although the manual (cmdargs.texi [1]) doesn't say
| anything about `subdirs.el' (it's not mentioned in the manual at all),
| I'd expect "minimum customizations"[1] *not* to modify `load-path'.
| E.g. I have some other Gnus version installed in site-lisp.  I'd
| expect Gnus 5.11 from Emacs 22 after `M-x gnus RET', but I get the
| version from site-lisp.

| I think it should load subdirs.el.  Hiding the packages

Bye, Reiner.
