I don't expect load balancers to turn into cable monkeys.

A Foundry router would do this if you enable automatic subnet VLANs (I
forgot the exact term; sorry) over port-based or protocol-based VLANs.
I'm not aware of any cisco switch having a similar feature, but I never
researched it.

Otherwise, it depends on how you configure VLANs the ports are in.
There is no yes/no answer to your question as it's currently posed.
