Of course. Jimmy Page deliberately does everything.
Listen to the intro to "Friends", you can hear one slightly out of tune string. He does little things like that all the time.
Another example. Listen to "The Crunge", he tests the strings to hear himself before the guitar part kicks in, yet he does it live!
