Electrolysis In Roofing Materials

A new cedar shingle roof has been installed.
Some copper flashing has been used and some aluminum flashing has been used.
Should there be any concern about electrolysis occurring if
the two metals are not touching or in close proximity to
each other?

No problem between copper and aluminum. They are right next to each other molecularly (yes, that must be a word because I was able to type it)
