Yes. The normal sockets have thinner walls, and thus are able to reach bolts that are set close-in. (The designers of those machines need to be close, and are well aware of the dimensions of standard sockets; though there is an argument to be made that socket head cap screws are the better choice for close clearances).
Also, every socket has a bevel to help it center on the nut, and that bevel has a height. This precludes it from being used with extremely shallow nuts, such as those found on sandwich mounts, glands, conduit nuts, etc. Impact sockets have a deeper bevel, which makes it harder to work with thin nuts or bolt heads.
