No, what it can do in the background is some of the data processing that happens after a sync, but not the part of the sync where data flows over the network.
I think that one of the iOS 4 background APIs could be used by OF to actually trigger a sync when you moved it to the background, but I'm not positive. I would be very happy to see them implement that by November when 4.2 hits the general public.
I'm sure they would be happy to do it, too :) The issue as I understand it has been that they've been unable to get useful network access working once in the background.
