Not exactly... RPM strips executables (at least versions I'm working with - 
4.4) as part of post-install action. spec generated in CPackRPM.cmake doesn't 
contain %install section, so rpm doesn't strip binaries and create debug 
package. Look in rpmbuild and cpack logs.

Also, you may check for CPACK_STRIP_FILES cpack variable.
