Sure, theoretically it can, but it doesn't. In c-mode and other
derived modes, you'd set c-electric-flag to get the sort of behaviour
you describe (bound to semi-colons, commas etc, rather than C-S-RET),
but it is down to each mode to provide such a feature unless someone
writes such a generic feature and encourages major mode authors to
support it.
