Is it necessary that every user in a buyer group get's a role in the Q&A?
No. You can set up a buyer group and decide to only grant access to the Q&A tool for a selection of users in that group.
Keep in mind that without a Q&A role, users can not see any questions or answers asked in the Q&A tool. Making it impossible for them to participate or collaborate.
You can make a distinction between "Question Drafters" and "Question Submitters", or when you want to exclude users, "No Q&A". See the example screen below:
