No!  External parameter entities are just like the external subset.
Section 2.8:

 The external subset and external parameter entities also differ from
 the internal subset in that in them, parameter-entity references are
 permitted within markup declarations, not only between markup

In fact, the external subset is effectively just an external PE referenced
at the end of the internal subset.
