Sure, they do, and if they do not, there is a bug which needs fixing asap.

d-i should even do the right thing for you, it will install the latest 2.6.8
kernel. There is 2.6.9 in unstable, and 2.6.10 in the NEW queue waiting for
processing, but 2.6.8 + a bunch of backport and fixes is still scheduled to be
the sarge kernel for now.

And if it does, hopefully said patch will be backported to whatever kernel
debian/sarge ships.
