Yes; at least, it's in the core source code (I just downloaded it)
and seems to be used in several places.  (I don't normally develop
for Android; I merely did a quick look.)

Busybox itself doesn't have OpenSSL.  Busybox and Linux are
normally combined with other stuff in embedded devices.  I'm
by no means expert in this area, but somewhat-at-random I
looked at Tiny Core Linux <http://www.tinycorelinux.net/>.
It includes OpenSSL in its Tiny Core Extensions package, which
appears to be its only plausible environment that Emacs could run in.

The pattern, I expect, is that if it's reasonable to consider
running Emacs on a GNU/Linux-based platform, these days openssl
is most likely a standard part of that platform.
