No.  If you look at cl-print.el, you will immediately see why: it uses
cl-incf and cl-find-class.

Once again: we do pay attention to this stuff, so the chance of
finding some random example where cl-lib is loaded due to a bug are
slim.  And in any case, it is not necessary to discuss this here, one
can just look in the code using "C-h f".
