Yes it does, just not in the way you expect.

That's because there's no such thing as a deleted folder in CVS.  CVS
only manages files, it does not manage directories (folders).  It simply
uses directories to organize the files that it is managing.  There is a
-P flag to checkout and update that deletes empty directories from
working directories to avoid clutter -- you may want to add them to your
~/.cvsrc file(s).
