No, actually not.

In "normal" setups (no multipath, fancy storage etc), all disks are
/dev/sd*

The only exception is KVM Virtualization if people still use the
(old, featureless, not useful) virtio-blk instead of the (better,
newer, more features) virtio-scsi. The solution there: use
virtio-scsi, and disks are again /dev/sd*.

In my desktop, /dev/sda can become sdb or sdc on the next boot, if I
happened to hotplug some other disk (maybe usb, maybe esata). Using of
/dev/sd* names has been deprecated for a reason.
