Does Mathematica 5 use multiple processors on SPARC?

I assume this technical FAQ

http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/allplatforms/multipleprocessors.html

is out of date since it says "The current version of Mathematica does 
not take direct advantage of multiple processors on any platform"

whereas

http://www.wolfram.com/products/mathematica/newin5/performance/

says "Mathematica 5 also takes advantage of multiple processors for a 
range of numerical operations on those operating systems such as Linux, 
Windows, and HP-UX that support this multithreaded capability."

Now my question is does Mathematica 5 support multiple processors on 
Solaris? Since the kernel code is very similar across platforms, I 
assume it does, although it is odd to mention HP-UX and not Solaris, 
when the latter is probably used much more.
