It can. It depends on the TeX set-up. 'man updmap.cfg' explains.
You can use the pdffonts programme (from the Xpdf suite) to check.
Notice that the PDF spec says not to include/embed the standard 14
PostScript fonts (Times, Helvetica, Courier, Symbol, Zapf-Dingbats).
updmap --setoption pdftexDownloadBase14 true
updmap --setoption dvipdfmDownloadBase14 true
updmap --setoption dvipsDownloadBase true
will "embed" all fonts in PS or PDF output. Dvips offers to include
the complete font into its PostScript output – which can be illegal.
Check your fonts' licenses!
Pdftk allows to "flatten" a PDF file – whatever this is!

DVI does not. It always references the font names. Then the output
driver (dvipdfm, dvips, ...) fills in ...
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to
build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying
to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
