Both my personal observations when travelling from Turkey to India and Wikipedia say yes.

This matches my limited research on this topic as well. However, I am not sure that when these codes are embedded in Arabic text, their logical order always matches their display order.
That shouldn't matter, since unicode text follows logical order. The display order is up to the graphical representation library.
