Yes for tradspool.  But no for 2.3 or later.

} >From the manual page:
}      renumber group
}           Scan the spool directory for  the  specified  newsgroup
}           and  update the low-water mark and hi-water mark in the
}           active file.  If group is  an  empty  string  then  all
}           newsgroups are scanned.

This is incorrect for 2.3 and fixed.

       renumber group
              Scan overview database for the specified  newsgroup
              and  update the low-water mark and hi-water mark in
              the active file.  If group is an empty string  then
              all  newsgroups are scanned.  Renumber never works,
              unless overview data is created.  See the  descrip-
              tion   of  ``enableoverview''  in  inn.conf(5)  for
              overview creation.
