I'm thinking yes, it does....
He pulled over in front of me long before he looked back. To me that says "I wonder how bad I dropped that guy".

When I pass people, I look BEFORE I pull into their lane. I don't bother to look back at people I've long passed unless I'm worried that they're on my ass because I shouldn't have passed them in the first place.

I can see how this might make me look like a jerk but I probably didn't do a good job explaining how it went down. If you were there I'm sure you would have gotten the same impression.
