No.

That is not true. Peter Pentchev once wrote:

"The kern.randompid sysctl is not a boolean flag, but an estimate of
the random value that will be added to each newly created pid. For
more information, read the comments in src/sys/kern/kern_fork.c before
the sysctl_kern_randompid() function (around line 150). The function
itself ignores sysctl settings of less than 2."
