As long as the output of the underlying gcov tool is correct for
Objective C, the answer should be yes. There has been a bug fix for LCOV
since version 1.9 available in the CVS version of LCOV  which fixes
some Objective C related problems. Quote from the patch log:

This sounds as it may apply to the issues you are seeing.
