No, they are not supported by the OGR Memory driver.

But... if you use the very latest trunk with spatialite support, the OGR 
SQLite driver now supports the VSI virtual file API, which enable you to create 
a spatialite DB in "/vsimem/foo.db" for example and thus taking advantage of 
spatial index.
