No.  If there's no .eln for the file you load/require, Emacs will try
to load the .elc, and if that fails, will load the .el.  In any case,
if there's no .eln, Emacs will start a native-compilation in the
background, and will load the .eln file when it is ready, replacing
the .el/.elc.

All this is by default, of course; you can disable the JIT
compilation, and you can disable loading the .eln file after the JIT
compilation.  And you can do other things ;-)
