It does, although M and MB do mean slightly different things
(not that it likely matters in this case).  From dd(1):

    N and BYTES may be followed by the following multiplicative
    suffixes: c=1, w=2, b=512, kB=1000, K=1024, MB=1000*1000,
    M=1024*1024, xM=M, GB=1000*1000*1000, G=1024*1024*1024, and
    so on for T, P, E, Z, Y.  Binary prefixes can be used, too:
    KiB=K, MiB=M, and so on.  If N ends in 'B', it counts bytes
    not blocks.
