Yes, when you do a factory reset in TWRP it does NOT wipe internal storage. If you read the TWRP script while it's wiping it says "wiping data without wiping data/media". Data/media is where your emulated internal storage is stored. The only way you will wipe your internal storage is if you deliberately check the internal storage box in the TWRP wipe menu.
