Short answer: no if the page with the QR code was not tracked

Google tracks pages are they are visited, based on the invisible tracker which is triggered by page load.

If the pages have been url-shortened by an url-shortener such as bit.ly, you might get some stats about past browses of this page.

B-) Glad I could help. Thx for the grade and points.
I forgot to mention that bit.ly provides you with stats on the link to the page AND with a QR code
