No. A save() just persists the changes in the current workspace and
doesn't modify the version history in any way.

JCR versioning is a bit like a centralized version control system with
the version storage acting as the central version server and each JCR
workspace as a client system with local copies of the version
controlled trees. Changes in the local copy (i.e. saves in the JCR
workspace) only affect the central version history after an explicit
checkin operation. Similarly, you only see updates from other clients
(workspaces) when explicitly updating.
