No. If the software is distributed as a .jar file, or zip file, or tar.bz2 file, or any other kind of file, that is the file the port would download from the upstream server, and then extract or manipulate in whatever way necessary. In the case of a .jar file, presumably no manipulation would be necessary, so you would clear "extract.only" and copy the file from distpath to where it needs to go inside destroot.
