  • No.

    The TPM is a chip that’s part of your computer’s motherboard, it’s a hardware. Despite we completely delete all partitions, re-partition, clean install OS, TPM still exists and keeps your keys, unless it prompts you to clear it and you choose agree.

    Clearing the TPM (Trusted Platform Module), which is a thing you would do if you were selling your device to another person, is you will not do this, you do not need to clear the TPM.
