No, it doesn't.

  The attribute xml:base may be inserted in XML documents to specify a
  base URI other than the base URI of the document or external entity.
  The value of this attribute is interpreted as a URI Reference as
  defined in RFC 2396 [IETF RFC 2396], after processing according to
  Section 3.1.

and section 3.1 says

  The set of characters allowed in xml:base attributes is the same as
  for XML, namely [Unicode]. However, some Unicode characters are
  disallowed from URI references, and thus processors must encode and
  escape these characters to obtain a valid URI reference from the
  attribute value.

The attribute value can be an IRI. The IRI represents a URI.
