Yes.

Range applies on the requested entity as such, before transfer encoding.

transfer-encoding is purely a transfer property added to the HTTP
message when it is sent, not a resource property. It's still the same
entity no matter how much you add/remove transfer encodings (including
compression).

Note that this is very different from Content-Encoding which is a direct
property of the entity/resource, and for Content-Encoding Range applies
to the encoded entity.
