Not so long as they ID properly somewhere.  They can do that in the comment
field, on a local AX.25 beacon (not digipeated), CW ID, or whatever.  This
is usually done for tactical callsigns, where it's more important to
indicate a station's function that its legal ID.

However, using the last three of your callsign for brevity in AX.25 is just
kind of silly, because it's a fixed length field.  Those bytes are still
getting transmitted, just with blanks.
