No. On Solaris 10, both /usr/bin/sed and /usr/ucb/sed cannot handle 
these. But on that platform, nbsed is used anyway. Maybe these 
implementations were even the reason for adding nbsed to bootstrap?

But thanks for the question. Grepping through the /mk/ directory showed 
that those character classes only seem to be used together with sed(1) 
in code that originates from me.

Up to now, no one has complained. :)
