No, Aquamacs stores the frame sizes associated with each file visited  
(provided the defaults are left in place).

Frame Appearance does not store frame sizes.
`smart-frame-positioning-mode' is a different functionality.

It will not retain sizes when you do C-x C-f to visit a file, because  
then the frame is opened first, and you select the file right there.  
If you load a file with Apple-O or with the "Recent Files" menu, it  
should be opened where you last left it.

We could try to put some more thought into frame sizes for the next  
Aquamacs version. If you'd like that, please do send a concrete  
suggestion for this to the aquamacs-devel list. (Generally, we're  
looking for solutions that make it easy for the user. No configuration  
if possible.)
