No, Cap claimed he wouldn't sacrifice himself for the good of others. He wouldn't lay down on the wire and let his friend crawl over him; all his fights in the first two films were personal ones where people were coming directly after him. He had never directly fought for the public good before.
But that's what he did at the end, and he showed he was willing to sacrifice himself to do it. So yeah, that's an arc.
