Not necessarily, as some people don't even add ID3 tags to MP3 files and
can play them just fine (just makes it harder to identify the song!). But they
do have to be correctly added if you want them.

You can use a tagging app like EasyTAG to check out and fix your Vorbis
comments, and to remove ID3 tags from your Vorbis files. You can find it in
the Ubuntu package repositories via Synaptic.

Also, I know everyone else has told you this, but it's generally a pretty lousy
idea to transcode lossy to lossy. If you need to get the original media back,
hit eBay, Amazon, or your local used record shop (that's what I do, anyway. :) )
