Apparently yes:

Here is a "make check" failure example:

FAIL: cp/fiemap-empty (exit: 1)
===============================
...
+ fallocate -l 10MiB -n unwritten.withdata
+ dd count=10 if=/dev/urandom conv=notrunc iflag=fullblock
of=unwritten.withdata
10+0 records in
10+0 records out
5120 bytes (5.1 kB) copied, 0.00219578 s, 2.3 MB/s
+ cp unwritten.withdata cp.test
++ stat -c %s unwritten.withdata
++ stat -c %s cp.test
+ test 5120 = 5120
+ cmp unwritten.withdata cp.test
unwritten.withdata cp.test differ: char 1, line 1
+ fail=1
