No, there is a retail version that doesn't go through Steam, though it has a CD-key.

If you have the Steam version, you can install it normally, then look for the Doom 3 v1.31 patch. It contains a Steamless executable. Place it in the Doom 3 folder in addition to/replacement of the Doom 3 exe that was there, and there you go, this allows you to buy the game on Steam yet play it without using the Steam client.

Oh, I should add one thing: the exe from the 1.31 patch will not work with Doom 3 BFG Edition. Reason why is that they have completely changed the data file format (imagine if there was a Doom update and they had replaced the WAD format of the IWADs with Quake's PAK format for some reason). If you have Doom 3 from the BFG edition, you can only play it through Steam.
