Yes it does. Seltzer contains water with dissolved CO2. When it is sprayed on the plants it is absorbed by the leaves for a little while and if there is not a lot of ventilation the parts per million of CO2 is increased in the immediate area surrounding the leaf. To be effective, this should be repeated several times a day.
This method of raising CO2 levels can get expensive with large plants and also increase humidity to undesirable levels. It is most efficiently used with seedlings and young post-cloning vegetative starts.
