You would be wrong here. Some people (and I have done it once) screen for
antibiotic restance insertion into plant promoter cassettes by plating the
ecoli on double Ab selection.

Eg cloning a hyrgomycin coding region into a CaMV 35S cassette contained in
a pUC plasmid you can select for  the plasmids with inserts by selecting on
amp and hygromycin. It does not always work. Seems to depend on the exact
context of the clone.
