Usually no, if to specified the dynamic shared library at link time.
The dynamic load module automatically loads the library at startup and maps the unresolved symbols from the executable.

Of corse, you may tell the linker not to do so, or you have not specified the appropriate libs at link time, then you must load the libs yourself using dl_load().
