No, they don't. Image maps depend on having a cursor over a specific
spot on a graphic on a screen with a browser that can interpret the
position of the cursor and act on it according to special codes in the
graphic. Search engine software reads text. Just text. If you look
at your raw HTML code, that's what they can see and follow. Anything
encoded in the graphic, or dependant on displaying the graphic, is not
going to be seen.
