Not without adding external circuitry such as a relay.
The RPi is much like any modern PC..... the 5V standby circuits in the power supply and motherboard remain powered even when the computer is shutdown.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.
