Yes; see the GRANT reference page.

I'm disinclined to change it.  We've had the current behavior since we
introduced ACLs for functions at all, and there have been very few
complaints.  I think we'd get a lot more complaints if we denied public
EXECUTE by default.  One reason is that given the way pg_dump and
default permissions work, any such change would break existing
applications, because an existing schema loaded into a new backend
would suddenly have different permissions behavior.
