Yes, if the u-boot version on the board sets fdtfile to BOARD.dtb.

We have no way of knowing from flash-kernel what the u-boot on the board
will set for fdtfile. The fdtfile variable may be VENDOR/BOARD.dtb or it
may just be BOARD.dtb. In some boards, depending on which version of
u-boot you're using, it could be either one.

Supporting both is the only real way I can think of to handle those two
common cases.

live well,
