From my experience, yes ... ish.

On BA2279 to OAK last Saturday from gate thirty-something (i.e. in the rotunda), there was a Tensa barrier ahead of the main gate agents, staffed by G4S. An announcement was made that boarding would be made by group number, and then groups 1 and 2 were called forward to the G4S staff for their BP to be checked and the usual questions about purpose of visit before being passed onto the BA gate agents. I don't know much about what happened after groups 1 and 2, but it was definitely called by number rather than status (ditto for the return from OAK on Monday, but there can't have been more than 40 people on the entire flight when they called 1, 2 and 3 together).
