In orbital line of sight (LoS) constellations and wireless meshes,
yes. Arguably there's a cost function over fiber laid as well, e.g.
long-distance fiber runs typically follow a geodesic. Of course
over short distances relativistic ping isn't a necessarily good
metric for distance.

However, when deploying a geographically routed network with 
address assignment/refinement from mutual relativistic ping
triangulation there would be incentive that topology follows
geography.
