No. The android uninstall process will stop the app and remove any internal data before deleting the apk file, plus remove any temporary changes made by the app.

I don't think stopping the application before uninstalling matters, While uninstalling Android system automatically stops the application. There is no need to be bothering about it !

@netaddict Some of the temporary files are leave behind while uninstalling, but i don't think they are going to hamper the space or performance or your device you could always remove them manually or can use some apps that will do this for you ! I am sure you can find some applications available in the play store that can do this for you ..... :)
