  Yes. From policy:

  6.7. Details of removal and/or configuration purging


      3.   <postrm> remove

      4.   All the maintainer scripts except the `postrm' are removed.

            If we aren't purging the package we stop here.  Note that
            packages which have no `postrm' and no `conffile's are
            automatically purged when removed, as there is no difference
            except for the `dpkg' status.
