Not quite sure if calling entity_save() from code will trigger the update event or not.
So, does it?

Assuming you're asking whether or not
hook_entity_update(): no, it doesn't.
The controller class (or save callback function) for an entity type may well invoke it (for example
node_save() does), but you can't rely on it for an entity type without checking the code first.
