Following Sean Carroll here

There are good reasons to consider dynamical dark energy as an alternative to an honest cosmological constant. First, a dynamical energy density can be evolving slowly to zero, allowing for a solution to the cosmological constant problem which makes the ultimate vacuum energy vanish exactly.

Does this mean that vacuum fluctuations from the electroweak and strong nuclear forces will vanish also?
