The short answer is yes.
The long answer is that this is not a feature of haskell, but rather a
feature of certain programs, which happen to be mostly but not entirely
written in haskell, in particular, the haskell compiler. GHC can produce
dynamically linked libraries.

Object code, mostly. Sometimes a little data.
