Of course they do.  At least Linux does.
The NTP package installation is nothing special, it is just one of the
many packages that can be installed on the system.  Often even is installed
by default, so the end-user does not need to install it.
In a modern distribution the configuration for the most common case
(just setup a couple of server lines) is available in the usual control
panel for system configuration.  You can enter servernames, or possibly
even say "use servers from the pool".

The only difficulty is that you can assume so little by just saying
"it is a Linux system" because there are so many versions (distributions).
