Sure, its a feature some (but not all) system manufacturers put on a computer for factory settings recovery. Even though such a factory reset restores the operating system as well it is not associated with a function of the operating system directly.

So it depends on who the manufacturer of the computer is, not the operating system. Also in the course of using the computer, corruption or deletion of the stored restore image\information can occur and make it impossible to reset to factory conditions.
