I don't believe it does support a repair operation. One clue might be the lack of any repair option in the maintenance GUI. More specifically, the three "unzipcore" custom actions in the MSI (which unpack the zip files to the Program Files folder) are all conditioned to only run on the initial installation and not on repair. I think Sun's recommendation for repairing JRE (at least for this version) is, I believe, to uninstall and then reinstall.
