It might on Exmark machines, but there are other brands (like Deere) where it doesn't. When you raise the deflector on a Deere, the side panels of the deflector still stick out past the end of the deck.
You can see it in this pic I took back when I had my Z720. The deflector is up as far as it will go here-
