No. (except that obviously, it does save the changed configuration, but
it doesn't track the changes)

Before any changes are made, do

 bin/dumpdb lists/LISTNAME/config.pck > base_config

Then do

 bin/dumpdb lists/LISTNAME/config.pck | diff -u base_config -

to see changes.

Or possibly capture the http POST transactions to the list admin web
page in your web server or on the wire.
