Yes, it does, but this "feature" is pain ass to enter on a bash-shell:

Absolutely.  And this bothers me in many respects, not just
with sort -t.  Perhaps you should be directing your bug
reports to the Bash maintainer.  After all, in this
particular context (and in the other contexts I'm thinking
of) it should be perfectly obvious to Bash that the user
just wanted to type a tab.

I must be missing the point, because in my bash ~/.inputrc
I have a line:

Tab: tab-insert

which makes <TAB> give me just that,a tab (\t, 0x9, \011).
