... no they don't ???

The new NEXUS machines in Canada require a one-time passport scan, but there's a button fro "I don't have my passport with me".

Other than that, it's never technically required to make the machines work in either direction.

The really old GE machines don't accept it, but:
1. That's not a NEXUS machine
2. I've only seen them once in all my travel
