No.

[simon@x101 ~]$ man yum
...
       search This is used to find packages when you know something about the
              package but aren't sure of it's name. By default search will try
              searching just package names and summaries, but if that "fails"
              it will then try descriptions and url.

              Yum search orders the results so that those packages matching
              more terms will appear first.

              You can force searching everything by specifying "all" as the
              first argument.

Though the man page is a bit confusing, because it says

        * search string1 [string2] [...]

in the DESCRIPTION section.
