Not in my experience. My root mail, which does get delivered says:

# mail -s test root
hello
EOT
# mail
Heirloom mailx version 12.5 7/5/10. Type ? for help.
"/var/spool/mail/root": 1 message 1 new
N 1 root@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Mon Sep 25 11:56 18/542 test

Held 1 message in /var/spool/mail/root
# host acer-suse.lan
acer-suse.lan has address 192.168.1.72
Host acer-suse.lan not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
You have mail in /var/spool/mail/root

acer-suse.lan is something I told YaST when I first installed on this
computer. I'm currently running 42.2

There isn't normally any mail for root though; cron jobs have been told
to direct it to my user.
