I would recommend you add the appropriate subnets to that site. While it would work without it and you won't get any side effects, it just keeps things neat and tidy.

Alternatively, if you wanted that to be the "default" site, then don't add the subnets. That way, anything which doesn't fit into one of the other sites will automatically be placed there. Depending on your physical network layout and structure will depend on whether you want the configuration to be this way, or not.
