Nope, on page 594 for the Star requirements it says;
3. Earn six merit badges including any four from the required list for Eagle.
There is no wording like "While a _whatever_ Scout" that I can find.
When you think about it, You need to earn 4 "Eagle Required" merit badges
to get Star, and 3 more to get Life. All before you are "working" on
Eagle. Not having previously earned merit badges apply at any time would
be very inconsistent with this.
