No. But a good many of them place holds on checks. Even cashier's checks. Especially if you don't have enough in your account to cover it. This is because cashier's checks have been forged and used in scams. Especially if said check was from another country.

ETA: My locally based bank has always treated me fairly. Because I have been a customer for several years, my occasional big check gets approved by a manager and is available to me immediately.
