Except for that minor inconvenient fact that it does, and has since 10.4 I believe it was.

$ ps aux | grep launchd
root         1   0.0  0.1  2475280   2456   ??  Ss   20May11   4:35.02 /sbin/launchd

That's, PID #1, running as root, IE "init"

$ ls /sbin/init
ls: /sbin/init: No such file or directory
