No, but properly configured IGates will send messages to "local" stations 
based on where they were last heard. Local is as defined by the IGate 
operator... anywhere from "heard direct" to several hops away depending on 
what digis and other IGates are around them.

Digipeaters digipeat based on the path specified. Modifications can be done 
to the path by software-based digis, but I'm not aware of any that decide 
which packets to repeat based on the position of the originating station.
