Not necessarily. You will want to sync the CAD to the datum features, but you can use an RPS alignment or a datum alignment and then translate the part coordinate system back the nominal distance to the CAD coordinate system and then add the Sync CAD step to your program after your DCC alignment.

If you want to put the CAD coordinate system where it should be for your DCC alignment, consider a CAD alignment for your manual alignment or measure the top and translate the part coordinate system to your CAD reference frame by the nominal value after your manual alignment.

There are many ways to resolve this kind of alignment.
