Any wire terminal has to be listed for use with more than one conductor if you want to use it that way.

I have not seen ground clamps listed for more than one conductor.

If you mean does a metal raceway enclosing a grounding electrode conductor need to be bonded the answer is yes it does need to be bonded at each end.
