I'm sure some do, but it's not good. In a perfect world, it should be solid copper from the plug to the destination socket, connection, whatever. Each connection is an open invitation to corrosion. If you must splice, get a good, strong physical connection, encased in solder, wrapped with shrink wrap, then taped, and finally enclosed in a protective hose or conduit.
If you do terminate a wire with a crimp-connect, solder it anyway, and leave enough wire for subsequent replacements. An example would be a ring terminal at the battery post.
