I doubt it ...

Whenever the/a subquery is not depending on items in
the outer query, it should materialize this result first and
then use the cached result. Firebird doesn't do this. Ever.

Same issue:

insert into mytable
select * from mytable

-> this will create an endless loop, while it's perfectly
valid SQL.
