When you also have configured a server side home folder, then: YES.
If not, only the Username & Password is stored on the server, but the home folder still remains on the client.

The purpose is to have ONE location where you organize your accounts, but that could be accessed by many applications and functions, like file sharing, calendar access, accessing a wiki/website.
You only have to manage ONE location. So when someone forgot his password, you only have to change it in the server, and any applications which looks on the server for authentication is affected. Otherwise when every application has it's own users and passwords you have to go trough every single on to change it.
