No,there is what is called a sqealer, that lets you know the brakes need changing and are wore out,and some after market brakes do not have this.

Agreed. It's not an electrical sensor on older cars, I call it a 'sounding tab' that causes a squeal by rubbing on rotors before pad rivets dig in to rotor. I know of no such thing on drum brakes though
