Yes, but SQLite does not include a regular expression engine, and thus
according to the SQLite docs you need to register a REGEXP function in
order to make the REGEXP operator work:

"""
The REGEXP operator is a special syntax for the regexp() user function. No
regexp() user function is defined by default and so use of the REGEXP
operator will normally result in an error message. If a user-defined
function named "regexp" is defined at run-time, that function will be
called in order to implement the REGEXP operator.
