Well yeah. Think about it. If you have loose cables dangling between studs, then the insulation guy comes along and shoves them this way or that, then the sheet rocker comes in and sandwiches the cable between the stud and rock, then runs a screw through it. Or the cable is hanging near where the plumber is sweating his joints and cooks the wire. I'm sure we can think of dozens of cases where it is a bad setup BEFORE the walls are complete. But, once a wall is up, it isn't very likely that a fished wire can be damaged.
