No, Tor does DNS resolution on its own, by asking the exit node to perform name lookups. This is the reason that OpenNIC cannot be (easily) used with Tor: the exit node's DNS configuration determines what names are resolvable and the Tor network currently is sticking to the ICANN root simply to avoid unstable resolutions if different exit nodes use different DNS roots.
