No, they assume that some dlls are always at the same address for every process.

Wine uses preloader as a utility to mark particular libraries (*.dll.so are not a real dlls, they are dlls wrapped in shared libraries) to be loaded into specified address. If after that you get broken ELF library - it means your preloader is broken and can damage binaries. This can damage your entire system if you let it loose (allow to "optimize" your system).
