Definitely, just tested with wget 1.20.3:

<no cookies.txt exists>
$ wget --load-cookie=cookies.txt --save-cookies=cookies.txt google.com
$ sum cookies.txt
50297     1

$ wget --load-cookie=cookies.txt --save-cookies=cookies.txt google.de
$ sum cookies.txt
27483     1

What version of wget do you use ?

Regards, Tim
