Yes, I expect it does.
I’m distrustful of APFS in its current state. Since I have internal SSDs on most of my macs now, it’s not easily possible to avoid an unwanted conversion from HFS+ during system updates. I use monolithic images extensively both at home and at work; that often fails past Sierra and is officially deprecated by Apple. I have yet to see any disk repair utilities that support APFS beyond copying the same files that Finder would be able to copy, file space reporting is highly inconsistent depending on how you ask (Finder, command line, etc), it’s still not well documented…
I also haven’t seen any for-me compelling, or even interesting, features in the newer systems. I avoid clouds and sync, don’t want deep integration between apps or devices, and Mojave’s dark mode has crept so much into the light mode that I really can’t stand to look at it for more than a few minutes at a time.
I carefully bought a 2017 iMac right before WWDC to be sure of being able to be a stick in the mud, though I’d have preferred to see what the newer hardware would be like.

For the Trash, I try not to let mine build up too much, though I’m not adept at housekeeping, either in real life or virtually. But I once accidently emptied a users trash, and they were not happy…
