Yes it does. Did you check the documentation available ?

can not apply GPO to security groups or even if you could it becomes an 
administrative nightmare.  The whole point of OUs is to divide your 
organization into Organizational Units that you can apply policies to. 
What if someone needs to be part of an security group but does not need 
to have a certain policy applied to them or vice versa?

Like you say it's not always good idea and it is to be avoided when a
better solution exists. However, it *is* possible and it is a technique
that MS document. (it's also part of the curriculum for the 2003 MCP
