From my experience no it does not.
When you register a .com.au domain then Google sees that you are targeting the Australian Market.
It does not care where you are hosting the domain.
But hows this for strange...
I just built a website for a client and it's a .com domain.
He has an Australian business.
I got him on the front page of google Australia for a certain keyword with a .com domain... go figure..lol
Hope that helps.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.
