Yes, though I think there are still a couple obscure cases it does not
handle.

You need to fully install it.  Each supported major mode needs to have
the correct tables set up so that it knows how to parse it.

If you have downloaded the "cedet" beta package, follow the
CEDET/INSTALL instructions.

Yes.  There are also modes that will do that automatically if you
leave Emacs idle for a little while.
