It most certainly does, that would be configurable, but you can
confirm that by yourself: look at the full headers of the email you
receive, you should see some headers saying something like:

Received: from mx2.freebsd.org (mx2.freebsd.org [69.147.83.53])
        by mail.cs.ait.ac.th (8.13.1/8.12.11) with ESMTP id l5CFXURR030909
        for <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>; Tue, 12 Jun 2007 22:33:34 +0700 (ICT)

Now consider the top most of the Received-by headers, this top most
one has been generated by your qmail server. Does it have an IP
address associated to the the name of the sending machine
(mx2.freebsd.org [69.147.83.53])? If yes, it means qmail did some DNS
resolving.

bests,
