No.

CSV imports create new issues. You might be able to convert your spreadsheet edits to Jelly scripts, or push them through REST calls, but it's not simple.

CSV import also does updates (if issue key and summary are provided). I know in the past this was not possible but at least since JIRA 5 it is.

You can use runFromCsv with updateIssue from JIRA Command Line Interface. The csv file will need to have the issue id and the fields that need to be updated. Similar to How to import JIRA issues using CSV, but with something like

jira --action runFromCsv --file xxx.csv --common "--action  updateIssue  ..."
