Generally no.
GNU base64 preserves the input exactly.


  $ printf "hello\n" | base64 | base64 -d | od -tx1c -An
    68  65  6c  6c  6f  0a
     h   e   l   l   o  \n

I observed above case in my usage

Perhaps another part of your processing converts
the new line characters? esp. if you are using Windows.

If you can provide a succinct reproducible example,
that would help in diagnosing the issue.
