No,
because using pvcreate on the wole disk doesn't leave free space on
disk.
The only way in which pvresize is usefull is when you do, for example, a
dd of the entire disk to a bigger one.
So after the copy, you can use the pvresize to obtain the remaining
space available on the VG.
The same about the partitions.
If you create a PV on a partition and after that you extend the
partition, so you can use pvresize.
