WordPress posts with multiple categories

Can WordPress ever fail to show a post on a category archive page (e.g. "cat-food") because that post also has other categories assigned to it (e.g. health, sponsors, products etc) ?

In other word, can assigning multiple categories to a post cause "confusion" about what category it is in? (I mean outside using custom logic in PHP to pull posts by category.) Is the same true about tags when using Tag Templates? Multiple tags not likely to cause issues?

I have several posts with multiple categories and have never had an issue with them not showing up in every one via any search method.
Same goes for tags.

While it is generally better to limit the number of categories so the same post isn't viewed multiple times in a single session, there are times when it is appropriate. Wordpress can handle this.

It should be managed automatically by WordPress and it should not cause any issue.
