It does and you could but I haven't. You could just remove the liquid out tube and cut it all off if you weren't worried about ever using the kegs for soda (or beer in my case) again.
When I was using my kegs for storing homebrewed beer I actually pulled the liquid pickup tubes out of some of them and cut about an inch off the bottom so they would not pick up any yeast sediment which had collected on the bottom. If you are a patient homebrewer you don't have to do this as the yeast will eventually pack itself enough so that it won't get sucked up but I wasn't very patient. Me want beer now, dammit.
