Not because of the haplogroup, but there is evidence that longer
alleles mutate a bit faster than shorter ones. Thus, the typical
R1b person has DYS392=13, while the typical I has DYS392=11, so
you would expect the average mutation rate for DYS392 to be a bit
lower in haplogroup I than in R1b. However, some R1b's have 11
at DYS392, and they would be just as slow as the typical I's.
