Not necessarily. In one of our previous project we patched the Sanity
Bot to run clang-format over the patch (only the patch, not the complete
files) and provide the complains as bot comment.
You could ignore it, or just copy and paste one command from the comment
and it would fix all the issues in your patch (again only the patch, not
the complete file).

Just pasting a single command doesn't sound like it would defeat any
productivity goal to me.
