Nope; the oil is almost immediately picked up by the scavenge side of the main oil pump, and sent through the main oil filter before it re-enters the tank (and then the oil coolers and engine after that) . . . no recirculation in the engine is physically possible (pressure side of the pump does not draw from the case sump).
