I don't think so, the sorting routines use a strict weak ordering:
"6 In the descriptions of the functions that deal with ordering relation-
ships we frequently use a notion of equivalence to describe concepts
such as stability. The equivalence to which we refer is not necessar-
ily an operator==, but an equivalence relation induced by the strict
weak ordering. That is, two elements a and b are considered equiva-
lent if and only if !(a < b) && !(b < a)."
