It does, but you need to coerce it a little :)

In addition to setting the 'in_footer' parameter to true when you
enqueue the script, you also need to manually call wp_print_scripts()
within wp_footer(). I don't recall why this is the case, but I suspect
you'll find a ticket and discussion of it on Trac if you have a search
