It does, although upgrading it to jQuery 1.1.4 is rather simple.  You just need to replace the jquery.js file that ships with Drupal with a new download of jQuery 1.1, and then also have a simple dummy module that adds the jQuery 1.1 backward compatibility plugin (available from jquery.com).  I haven't tried upgrading to 1.2 yet, although in theory it should be the same procedure but include adding the 1.2 backward compatibility plugin as well.

(jQuery, the only project that moves faster than Drupal. <g>)
