It does.

The manual does say very explicitly.
>From the first sentence on that link you provided:

"The Extra Devices tab allows other audio devices in the system to show up
as JACK clients and be used by JACK applications. These bridges are
created using zita-ajbridge a light weight but high quality bridge. These
bridges use resampling to make sure the audio is in sync with the master
audio device. "

The package zita-ajbridge includes the individual clients zita-a2j and
zita-j2a for alsa-to-jack and jack-to-alsa bridging respectively.
