no, but the general theme is that raster modules which import
pre-existing datasets (r.in.*) preserve that data arrays; while
modules which create new raster maps (r.* including v.to.rast,
r.in.poly, r.in.xyz, and r.proj) will respect the region.

and then of course there will always be an exception or two to
the rule, but you can pretty much trust the above.
