Yes it does - that's it's purpose. It got AFAIK originally invented with the Easy Wheels in the early 2000s as with those mounted the short seat post did not reach the floor anymore. Thus the bung was sold bundeled with them or as a seperate spare-part - it was never a standard part. With the new standard roller wheels size increased, so there was the need for a bung as standard (and possibly it had to be cheap and light but did not need to be as high as the former version for the easy wheels.
