No, Print Preview does not show the automatically inserted blank pages.  
At least, it doesn't on my system.  On my documents, in Print Preview, 
the only hint that blank pages have been inserted is in the page 
numbers.  If one chapter ends on a right page, the next chapter 
automatically begins on a right page so a left page is inserted to cause 
this to happen.  Right pages always have odd-numbered pages, so if one 
chapter ends on, say, page 21, the next chapter will begin on page 23 so 
you know that blank page 22 was inserted.  However, if you export to 
pdf, the pdf file will have the blank pages.
