No, MacPorts doesn't register directories to any port.

After the destroot phase, MacPorts goes through the destroot and  
deletes any empty directories (unless you list the directory in  
destroot.keepdirs, which causes a small empty file to be placed in  
the directory so that it's not empty and won't get cleaned up).
