No. Copyright consist in two parts. First one is "who is the author".
Second one is "what is usage/modification/publishing/etc.  permissions".
If you create some work, you are an author and no act including your owns
can deattach author rights from you. And if you put it in Public Domain
you, as author, grant anybody do anything with it.

No, "author" part of copyright can't be deattached, unless fraud happens.
