Usually, it should, but it depends on the font’s characteristics.
Basically, whether to margin-kern a glyph is determined this way:

+    /* Determine how many subsequent characters beginning WORD_CONTENT
+       deserve margin kerning.  Glyphs wider than the glyph for `x' will
+       _not_ be kerned at all, and only up to the width of the glyph for `x'
+       can be protruded in other cases.  */

original discussion.
