In brief: Not necessarily
Retracting the foreskin is not needed.
Good general hygiene should be sufficient with daily cleansing of the area. At that time the foreskin should be retracted and the area cleansed.

Men have to shake their penis a lot after urinating if they wish to avoid drips into their underwear after urinating from under a non-retracted foreskin. Much pleasanter, cleaner and drier to simply retract before voiding!
