The short answer is not explicitly. The longer answer is that there are 2
patches[1][2] up for review right now that add basic checks to tempest. But,
they haven't been able to merge because the nova support hasn't worked and the
tests fail...

Aside from those 2 basic checks I don't expect any other direct numa, hugepage,
etc. tests to be in tempest. Testing anything besides these basic cases would
require knowledge of the underlying hardware for the deployment, which is out of
scope for tempest. There really needs to be lower level functional testing of
these features.

That being said the other thing you could do using tempest is to configure 
to use flavors which are created to use numa. That would at least implicitly
test that the functionality would work. But, that really isn't a replacement for
the functional testing which is sorely needed here.
