Yes, but in order to keep this HKCR as clean as possible, you can use tools such as WiseComcapture or Flexera's AdminStudio.

Here's some excellent reading about this topic by Leslie Easter:

All captured COM registration entries required for running the application should be included into your installation package.
Some COM objects do self-registration or settings customization at run time. This can happen when an MSI installation is being advertised and is first run by a normal user account. Due to access controls, this self-registration fails resulting in a failure. To solve this problem you must run the application under an administrative account for the first time and capture the incremental changes that may occur. The modified registry entries under HKCR should then be added to the installation.
