No, they don't.
At present in fontspec and xunicode, you can only typeset characters
that you have actual glyphs for in the font. It appears that the
combining marks required in Latin Modern don't exist, which surprises
me a little.
Regular LaTeX gets around the problem by faking the accents; this is
possible in XeTeX too but no-one's written a package to do this yet.
There was some talk of an xdiacomp package to do this about 5 months
ago (thread "anti-xunicode") but this hasn't materialised into actual
support just yet.
Anyone still looking at this? I'd recommend implementing it with the
EU2 NFSS font encoding, which can then be hooked into fontspec
easily. (Unless font encodings end up just getting in the way...)
