Yes, it has.

It's a userdebug build which means If you use adb shell, su is still 
available to gain root privilege.

more detail please go to this page see the difference of Build Variants.

But because it's a standard "su" come from AOSP project. It only allow 
process raise privilege if
it has shell or system uid.

If someone can port a customized cyanogenmod "su" to this build. It can 
have full root access
for all the applications I guess.
