Not necessarily.

The video you are seeing could be incorrectly labeled as 25fps, and your video playing software is honoring that label. You can override that label by directly specifying the frame rate (in mplayer, at least: It would help us greatly if you'd tell us what player you are using, and some little clue as to what the video is!)
Or you could be comparing it to playing it on a DVD player and TV. The computer may be playing it at the correct 24fps, but the TV playing it at 25.

Video is not simple! Just wait until you try to get your head around interlacing! and colour spaces, too!
The only dumb question is a question not asked.
