Yes (in Active display = always on) since on LCD that's the while background that has a backlight and not only non-black pixels (contrary to amoled)
Using AcDisplay app by @AChep doesn't drain if Active mode isn't enabled

Active Mode just stands there for turning on the screen with proximity sensor. When with Lockcreen Mode on, works like Moto X. I really do not have an big battery drain and used AcDisplay since it's first beta with Moto G.

Active mode listens to device captors, so it may use some battery.
About LCD, you should search for extensive explanation about the technology and its pros/cons against Amoled (too long ton simply explain here)
In short :
LCD = 1 backlight (neon like cold cathode) for the whole screen (always ON even if a single pixel on the screen is not black)
Amoles= 1 led light per pixel (ON only if a pixel is not black, and OFF if it is black: only non black pixel uses juice)

So, it's the same thing for battery? (Black wallpaper and colorful wallpaper)
