No. There is something called playing in the post, which means playing near the basket. The post positions are located on the blocks (low corners of the paint) and at the free throw line elbows (high corners of the paint).

There is no connection between a basketball player's number and the position he or she plays.

You are in the post when you are close to the basket, so you'll mostly see Centers and Power Forwards in the post. Posting up, by the way, means pushing the defender backward with your back and getting closer to the basket with that.

This is a common parlance in government services. When a person is promoted from one position to higher position, the previous position is called substantive post. For example if ASP is promoted as SP, then ASP is the substantive post held by the person.

Offensively, the center runs the low-post offense, which is mostly going from the post position (in the key) from one side to the other. Defensively, it is often the center's job to plug the lane from anyone trying to go inside uncontested. This also involves trying to block out the post players/centers of the other team from getting easy inside lay-ups or, off-the-ball, from getting easy rebounds.
