Yes, it is. Shielding addresses differential mode RFI, and most trash
on power lines is a common mode signal and radiates just like any other
antenna. Although I tried a bunch of big clamp-ons on a twisted triad
power feed back in Chicago, it was long before I understood how ferrite
chokes work, and I'm now nearly convinced that it was a bad idea because
a string of beads is inductive.
Even if you could shield that line (it belongs to the power company, so
it's not a good idea), the common mode current would flow on that
shield, and you would still need to choke it to prevent it from radiating.
