AC - no.

Any dynamic cancellation of input bias current nonlinearity requires matched impedances.

If you look at Samuel Groner's measurements of BJT input opamps, the input bias current related effect shows up as the flat area at lower frequencies in the input impedance distortion graph; higher up, input impedance starts to dominate.
Their JFET colleagues show almost none of that shelf (it is eventually limited by common-mode distortion) but the capacitive part tends to be stronger by about a factor of 3, with very few exceptions like the OPA627 and its bootstrapped cascode input.
