It does, sort of ;)  Before openjdk I was building nosrc.rpm for Java from 
JPackage using this method, but IIRC it requires some manual mocking about 
(sth like init mock buildroot, download files required by the nosrc.rpm (e.g. 
the Java distributable for Java) into some specific directory in the 
buildroot, then continue the build).
