Absolutely not.

While most callbacks end with print theme('page', $output); (or its equiv. 
in HEAD, return $output) this is not a necessity. front_page module, for 
example, is able to print a non-themed front page. feed pages are also 

So in short, you have absolute control. If you call theme('page', $output) 
you get back your $output themed and you can print it. If you do not call 
it, so be it.
