I had exactly this same question occur to me yesterday, and yes, I
believe it does. From
These represent the truth values False and True. The two objects
representing the values False and True are the only Boolean objects. The
Boolean type is a subtype of plain integers, and Boolean values behave
like the values 0 and 1, respectively, in almost all contexts, the
exception being that when converted to a string, the strings "False" or
"True" are returned, respectively.
