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.
