Wrong place for the question, but the answer is no and no.

Naturally any such tags are preserved at least in the database dump
including history and via the changeset and history views of objects,
but that is it, there are no downstream attribution requirements outside
of pointing back to OSM, and indirectly individual sources via the
Copyright and Contributors pages.
