Yes.  wp-cache and friends cache entire pages rather than individual
objects.  Since a single post can show up in many different places due
to WP's dynamic nature, lots of pages need to be cached.  The object
cache takes the approach of caching just the objects to help speed up
dynamic page rendering.
