No, it doesn't.  (Or, at least, it doesn't have to.)  From the same 

"With session affinity you run a pool of application processes and the 
Web server routes requests to individual processes based on any 
information contained in the request. For instance, the server can route 
according to the area of content that's been requested, or according to 
the user. The user might be identified by an application-specific 
session identifier, by the user ID contained in an Open Market Secure 
Link ticket, by the Basic Authentication user name, or whatever. Each 
process maintains its own cache, and session affinity ensures that each 
incoming request has access to the cache that will speed up processing 
the most."

FastCGI also provides multithreading if you want to share process memory 
that way.
