I don't think that is probable. If you look at the boot messages, while
its booting, not in the log, you would see a message like "filesystem not
checked in so many days, checking forced". If you don't, it is something
else - and it may tell what.

Perhaps an fstab incosistency, a "/forcefsck" file...
