The simple answer is no.

The complex answer is:

Which changes trigger a UAC prompt in Windows?

There are many changes which require administrative privileges.
Depending on how UAC is configured on your Windows computer, they can cause a UAC prompt to show up and ask for permission.

These are the following: ( the highlighted reason is why we need UAC turned off during a silent install )

Running an app as administrator
Changes to system-wide settings or files in the Windows or Program Files folders
Installing and uninstalling drivers & applications
Viewing or changing another user’s folders and files
Adding or removing user accounts
Configuring Windows Update
Changing settings to the Windows Firewall
Changing UAC settings
Changing a user’s account type
Running Task Scheduler
Restoring backed up system files
Changing the system date and time
Configuring Parental Controls or Family Safety
Installing ActiveX controls (in Internet Explorer)
