Yes it does. It is based on spark dataframes (data lake) so you can always load images to dataframe:

df = spark.read.format("image").option("dropInvalid", True).load("data/mllib/images/origin/kittens")

Here are the supported data types for the Feature Store:

As you can see, image is not between them, but you could use BinaryType.
