Apparently. From debdiff(1):

  If debdiff is passed two source packages (.dsc files) it will
  compare the contents of the source packages.  If the source packages
  differ only in Debian revision number (that is, the .orig.tar.gz files
  are the same in the two .dsc files), then interdiff(1) will be used to
  compare the two patch files if this program is available on the
  system, otherwise a diff will be performed between the two source
