Yes. ~/.Xdefaults was never a file any version of GNU Emacs used.

This file is used by xrdb. This X client puts X resources into a kind of X environment (X resources DB). Since xrdb (and xmodmap and xset) are the first X clients launched by the X server when it interprets ~/.xinitrc, what they set every other X client inherits. As long as the resources are meant for this client ...
