No. Bounties are not refunded when a user is suspended, deleted, forgets they offered a bounty, finds the answer themselves while waiting for someone else, realizes bounties are not a way of awarding answerers a famous British ship, or runs out of paper towels.

Under normal circumstances - that is, those involving on-topic, answered questions - bounties will never be refunded. If you're not comfortable with this, don't offer bounties. It's a completely optional feature.

In very, very rare circumstances, moderators will opt to cancel a bounty and refund the reputation paid to offer it. These mostly involve questions that are a bad fit for the site and must be closed, migrated or deleted.
