If you are asking "Should we include properties files in a jar?" then the answer is "Yes, probably".

If you are asking "Can we include properties files in a jar?" then the answer is "Sure we can".

But I don't understand "Do we include properties files in a jar?". Probably a language thing... I can't tell whether "we" includes you and me or whether it's you and some other people, and in any case I don't know what those other people might do. So perhaps one of those other two questions might be more practical. Would you like to clarify?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
