Not for ACK's, or more accurately, as you suspected, not for any packet where
the segment length is zero.  From packet-tcp.c:tcp_analyze_sequence_number(),
starting at line 953:

    if( seglen>0
    &&  tcpd->fwd->nextseq
    &&  (LT_SEQ(seq, tcpd->fwd->nextseq)) ){
        ...

        /* out of order determination code */

        ...
    }
