Yes. From  main.cf:
# ADDRESS EXTENSIONS (e.g., user+foo)
# The recipient_delimiter parameter specifies the separator between
# user names and address extensions (user+foo). See canonical(5),
# local(8), relocated(5) and virtual(5) for the effects this has on
# aliases, canonical, virtual, relocated and .forward file lookups.
# Basically, the software tries user+foo and .forward+foo before
# trying user and .forward.
#recipient_delimiter = +

Uncomment the command, restart, and it should work.
