No it doesn't. A comma paves the way for clarifications of or expansions on
the first thought. If it's a NEW thought, it's followed by either a semi
colon, a colon or a period.

Sorry, but you're wrong.

(Which, above, by your reasoning, would mean "sorry" has nothing to do with
"but you're wrong," and you could assume that I was referring to something ELSE
you were wrong about. Doesn't work that way.)
