Yes it does.  It can completely change the indentation style including the
number of spaces.

If the spaces do not suit you you can change that by setting the
c-basic-offset variable.  For example, I like 5 spaces per indent:

(setq c-basic-offset 5)

In reality I use the stroustroup indentation style which uses a
basic-offset of 5 anyhow.
