Um, it doesn't for me. Testing on v3.0-rc1:

# ls /test/foo; rm /test/foo
ls: cannot access /test/foo: No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `/test/foo': No such file or directory
# ls /test/null; rm /test/null
/test/null
rm: cannot remove `/test/null': Read-only file system
# grep test /proc/mounts
/dev/vdb /test ext4 ro,relatime,user_xattr,barrier=1,data=ordered 0 0
