Yes, if you by HTTP header refer to the Content-Type header.

Squid will add some HTTP headers to the reply, but it does not touch or
add any Content-Type headers.

But Domino most certainly IS setting a Content-Type header like any
other HTTP server (it SHOULD if it wishes to call itself a HTTP server).
It for sure did when I worked with Domino servers some years ago,
controlled by it's mime mapping table, and it is extremely unlikely any
newer versions do not.

Squid only sets Content-Type on HTTP replies it generates (error pages,
or content gatewayed from ftp/gopher), not on replies it is forwarding
from other HTTP servers.
