blog template and plugin settings

Hi There,
I'm setting up a new blog network and have a template blog set up with the contact form 7 plugin. When I create a new site, everything seems to work apart from contact form. The page with the shortcode is created but the contact form 7 database is not created, thus generating an error.

Is the new blog template plugin supposed to copy the database and settings from plugins as well as pages, posts, etc?

Thanks
