Sure, if there is any doubt.

The paragraph mentioned in that bug has been massively changed since,
is part of the section that describes the poster attribute, and is
normative.

Right below it, it says:
The video element also represents any text track cues whose text track
cue active flag is set and whose text track is in the showing mode,
and any audio from the media resource, at the current playback
position.

So, I believe that no doubt remains.

Silvia.
