no. as long as superSU is a system app, you will have no root access problems. BUT if you wipe data and factory reset without making it a system app, you will lose the app but, you won't lose root. you will just lose the app that grants root access. easy to fix by just installing superSU from playstore or flashing the superSU zip found here in xda. do a search for the zip.
