Yes it does. For a long time I could not find the answer too which made worry about changing. One day I just did it and checked. The Firefox AddOn Live-Headers shows it very clearly.

Yes, it does, USUALLY. Best to try it and see. It handles most common changes automatically, but if you have very weird Permalinks to begin with, then it might not handle your specific case. In which case, there is likely a plugin for that. – Otto Feb 28 '13 at 2:56
