Simple answer, yes.
Synthetic oils are more slippery than dino and will find its way past smaller openings. I learned this first hand many years ago and won't make that mistake again. The engine had a couple minor drips before changing that turned into major leaks after. Changed back to dino and it took a few a month or so for the leaks to return to a couple minor drips.
