Not necessarily.

In fact, it has been reasonably hypothesized that YYYY-MM-DD is the most
cross-cultural, cross-ability, cross-language accessible / readable /
understandable date format (in comparison to two digit years, named months,
or randomly ordered year month day as opposed to numerically significant
ordering) and thus is actually desirable in a global (e.g. WORLD-wide-web)

Times have not been subject to the same analysis yet.
