No, not really - none of the demo programs in DOLFIN uses mshr.
However, I agree that it would be great to make mshr part of Debian.

mshr is already packaged for Debian [1]. The problem is that mshr
includes a (patched) copy of CGAL and was therefore rejected by the
ftp-masters. A bug report has been made for mshr [2] to enable use of
system CGAL, but this has not been fixed yet since mshr needs a
patched version of CGAL.
