Yes, you don't need them.

And when prompted for a regexp in `query-replace-regexp', you also don't
have to quote backslashes for regexp specials, contrarily to string
syntax, so one backslash is ok where you would have to type two in a
string describing a regexp.

The background is: the minibuffer input is used directly in this case
instead of being `read' as a lisp object (string).
