With a quick look, it does not.

Look at: readahead_early and readahead in FC2
I believe that they are new,,, see below.

If you are bold you can add timers to each of the rc files and get
some statistics.  Then add background (&) commands to selected ones.
Check for start etc so the right things happen.

Do this with care as many boot activities depend on a previous action
completing. It is important to find the slow ones that do not clutter
the dependency tree of the boot process.

About... readahead_early and readahead in FC2

The two differ in their input data file.

The list of files including libraries and fonts is long.
Perhaps long enough that local pruning and tuning may apply.
