It should, yes. The same happens for the artist-albumtitle.bmp (in
.rockbox/albumart) filename. I've updated the Wiki with that small detail.

There is one limitation though: if the full path to the album art file
exceeds 260 bytes in length, it will be truncated, and that happens
after having added the size string (if any) and the ".bmp" extension...
