Answer: No, mulch does not need to be watered.
Explanation: There is no reason to "water" mulch of any type. However, the purpose of mulch is to hold water or irrigation for future use by plants and trees. If your plants or trees need water, then by all means, water! The only effect you receive by "watering" mulch is that it will turn a darker color for a brief time period. Yes, it can be aethestically pleasing for a bit, but there is no real benefit to it. The water you provide will either evaporate or feed your plants.
