No - see 1.4.3:

" Incidental: Text or images of text that are part of an inactive user interface component, that are pure decoration, that are not visible to anyone, or that are part of a picture that contains significant other visual content, have no contrast requirement."

Do disabled controls (grayed out to indicate disabled) have to meet WCAG SC 1.4.3?
