Depends on the command. My man page for grep|egrep|fgrep says:
Exit status is 0 if any matches are found,
1 if no matches are found, and 2 for syntax
errors or inaccessible files.
Not finding a certain string in some files means that it is *false* that
this string resides in these files. I wouldn't characterize that as any
kind of *error*.
