It should not since it is a spring CONSTANT right?
If the spring is only slightly extended or compressed, the spring constant should be just that: constant. But you can certainly get weird behavior if you seriously distort the spring by stretching it too much. Certain spring with high spring constants can also be 'over-compressed'.

Spring constant would be a constant as long as you are within the elastic limits... so that the strain is not permanent.. of course once you cross the yield strength , hooks law no longer is valid
