In 32bit mode, it would.  There's also sun4d (unsupported by NetBSD).

No, only sparcv9.  Or maybe sparcv10 too, if that is US-III ?

From a Solaris7(64bit), UltraSPARC-II:
% isalist 
sparcv9+vis sparcv9 sparcv8plus+vis sparcv8plus sparcv8 sparcv8-fsmuld
sparcv7 sparc
Solaris2.6, TurboSPARC:
% isalist
sparcv8 sparcv8-fsmuld sparcv7 sparc
Solaris7, SuperSPARC: (is 390Z55 -II ?)
% isalist
sparcv8 sparcv8-fsmuld sparcv7 sparc
