Not necessarily. According to the Sefer Zikaron Al Pirush Rashi (Bakrat),
when Rashi says that he explained Peshuto Shel Mikra that was on the
SPECIFIC Pesukim that Rashi says "Ani Lo Basi *Ela* Lefaresh"

Furthermore according to the Sefer Zikaron, Rashi chooses (a hierarchy)
of the closest Chazals to Pshat, which then gives rise to why he chose
one over another.
