YES.......

But why does the owners manual say that when you put it in four wheel the front axel is the engaged. If it spins all the time wouldn't it be engaged at all times then?

No, the front drive shaft from the transfer case is what drives the front axles and wheels when locked into 4-wheel drive. When your locked out of 4-wheel drive, the front drive shaft does not turn, rotate. so the front wheels are not locked in. On a GM, the front axles spin all the time with the wheel rotation.
