Only relatively lately, by some local setting that actually does the
CR/LF conversion (iirc core.autocrlf). Details are somewhat intricate.
There may also be hooks that would allow expansion/shortening of
stuff at least similar to $Id$.

As for $Id$, the git way is to compile the output of 'git describe
--dirty' or similar into the binaries, which will show the last tag
(something I don't even know how to find out in svn) reachable from
the current commit/revision, the number of commits since, (part of)
the current commit id and whether there is a local modification in
the sandbox.
