Yes they do. Rotors are pressed into the wheel bearings. Brake jobs are much more money. Prepare to spend about double that of a regular brake job if you are getting rotors replaced.
I strongly suggest bringing your car somewhere else for the repair if your mechanic can't look at modern brakes and tell if they are trapped rotors or not.
