I believe that they will.  <http://www.go-evolution.org/Camel.Search>
certainly suggests that Evolution [Camel] utilizes IMAP SEARCH.  And I
search 100,000+ message folders and get results way to fast for
Evolution to have done the work itself.

I do not believe Evolution indexes the *content* of messages which is
what Cyrus SQUAT does.  And to do so Evolution would need to download
the entire contents of a mailbox - which can be ridiculous for many
mailboxes [due to both size and quantity of mailboxes].

Of course Beagle can index contents of messages but only if they are
stored locally.
