Does the websocket dissector support fragmented data

The websocket protocol allows websocket messages to be fragmented into multiple messages.

Does the wireshark built-in dissector for websocket support fragmented data?

I saw this comment in the code: epan\dissectors\packet-websocket.c line 482: /* TODO: Add Fragmentation support (needs FIN bit)

However, this conflicts a bit with this other line regarding the fin bit: epan\dissectors\packet-websocket.c\packet-websocket.c line 662: "Indicates that this is the final fragment in a message"
