Not even remotely...the fingerings for the third space E down to low F are somewhat similar, but beyond those five or six notes, there is nothing about the bassoon`s mechanism that is anything like the clarinet, or any other woodwind. The flute, clarinet, oboe, and saxophone are all based on a fingering system devised (mostly) by Boehm, while the bassoon`s fingering system was developed in its present form by Heckel/Almanraeder. Lots of fascinating research to be done on that topic if you`re interested...
