Yes, but it's an extreme safek, more like a sfek-sfek-sfeka de'oraita, and
it would not be common to worry about it if not for the AriZal's teaching
that one should be extremely machmir on Pesach.   If you read the Alter
Rebbe's teshuvah you see that the cheshash only arises by combining several
opinions in ways that the authors of those opinions themselves didn't.

Zev Sero               A citizen may not be required to offer a 'good and
zev at sero.name          substantial reason' why he should be permitted to
                        exercise his rights. The right's existence is all
                        the reason he needs.
                            - Judge Benson E. Legg, Woollard v. Sheridan
