Yes - assuming you're changing the gain with the AS plugin.
AudioSuite is destructive, so it is writing that gain change to the file. When you consolidate, it is consolidating exactly what is on the timeline.
I have a feeling the OP was probably looking for a non destructive way of doing this though. As in clip gain on regions on the timeline - like Cubase.
Atm, there is no clip gain functionality in PT. There is a way of doing using Elastic Audio - though it does have restrictions.
If you enable EA on your track, split the track into regions, then right click on the region you want to apply the gain change to, you will be able to lower the gain by 6db - per region.
The limitation is that it is only 6db and it can only be lowered, not raised. It also means you have to enable EA on the tracks which will prob increase the hit on your CPU. Probably won't be that drastic if you don't actually stretch any regions though.
