Sure, it does.  Though I may not understand what you
mean by its bindings.

The symbol is an object - a complex/compound thing.
It has various properties.  One of the properties is
its value as a variable, which is accessible using
function `symbol-value'.  As a variable, that's the
symbol's variable (global) "binding".
