The answer is yes. So long as domains don't fall back into the unregistered pool (i.e. no one, no company has ownership of it), then a domain will retain its age as long as it passes from one owner to another.
if the domain expires and nobody renews it it can be re-registered as a fresh domain if someone picks it up again in future and in this case the age will be reset to zero.
