No they must not. Supposed, you mean “script” in the sense of “writing system”.
Then you would have to consider minuscule a different script than capitals, and italics a different script than Regular Roman. And so on.
This is all nonsense; Latin script is Latin script, however it may look like.

Which does not exclude the possibility of various sorts of that script/system getting used by variant rules or customs, as you mention in your example.
