Yes it does.  I used bookmark-bmenu-list to list the named bookmarks.
The mode line line numbers were shown as 'L??'

Here is the content of the ~/.emacs.d/bookmarks file.  I'm afraid I had
to replace some text in there, eg. path and file name, reference text
(sometext). The rest is as is.

 (filename . "logfile.log")
 (front-context-string . "1/sometext")
 (rear-context-string . "nclude -I/home/x")
 (position . 264231))
 (filename . "logfile.log")
 (front-context-string . "sometext production")
 (rear-context-string . "sutil3.empty.o\n\n")
 (position . 88415))
