No. One of the (many) benefits of dynamic linking is that you can change the library (as long as the ABI remains) under the executables. Thus, a change to fix, e.g. a security problem, doesn't require rebuilding the world. If the library developer is careful, this can work for a surprisingly long range. And you can (via library versions) have several ABIs supported at the same time.
