No.  It is not the job of the Texinfo processors to indent code in
@example or @lisp according to the language rules.  On the contrary:
the Texinfo processors refrain from any changes in the indentation in
these blocks, they just indent the entire block a little ways, leaving
the rest to you.  See the description of this in the "@example" node
of the Texinfo manual.
