In brief: Yes, but

Yes, but we can make cholesterol in the liver, so vegans can make what they need.
Good question!

In brief: It does not

A diet free of animal products is likely not to contain cholesterol.
Vegans need to supplement several vitamins and minerals, but they are clearly none the worse for no cholesterol in the diet. Talk to your physician about how to stay healthy should you decide to "go vegan".
