It should - if multiple packages obsolete something, you get all of them.
I can mostly confirm this is definitely the case and working in F16:
it's the mechanism we use to get *both* grub-efi *and* grub2 installed
on an F15->F16 upgrade, to replace grub. Both those packages obsolete
grub, and we've tested that this causes both anaconda and yum to install
both of those packages when doing the upgrade.
