Sure they do.  Here's an example:

<div style="overflow: auto; position: relative;
             width: 100px; height: 100px">
   <div style="position: absolute; top: 200px; left: 0;
               border: 10px solid black"></div>

The abs pos div affects the layout of its parent in Gecko, Webkit, and 
Presto there.  And I'm fairly certain that current spec language 
requires it to.
