If your question is: are there sex offenses in which you ONLY have to register during probation and not after probation, the answer is maybe. Right now there is no case law on this and now statute that specifically indicates one way of the other . However, I have had it happen in cases in which the offense is one in which registration is not mandatory and is only discretionary under 290.006. I have had cases where the plea bargain stipulated that the 290 registration is only for the term of probation. At the end of probation you have to go back to court and have the judge remove the 290 requirement.
A person is required to register pursuant to Penal Code Section 290 under a myriad of penal code section violations. One actually doesn't even need to be on probation in order to be required to register as a sex offender - only the conviction is required. Below is a link to the penal code section.
There are a few "sex crimes" that do not require a person to register as a sex offender per Penal Code section 290. Also, in some cases the judge has the discretion of imposing registration. You need to speak with a defense attorney about the particular facts of your case so you can know if your case will require registration if convicted.
