No. It's on the gas side, so you're fine.

How would you clean a CO2 tank, anyway? Just clean the threads?

Opening a CO2 tank to clean it would void the hydro test. Plus CO2 is chemically pure, so there isn't any reason to bother.

In your kegerator unless you have a back-flow from a keg, you don't need to do anything with the gas lines or connectors.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
