No it does not. SELinux stands for Security-Enhanced Linux. Inside the kernel LSM framework it provides Mandatory Access Control (MAC) or "who can do what?". SCAP stands for Security Content Automation Protocol. It provides a userland framework for fixing security issues or "what needs fixing?". Think the "security advisor" applications some OSes come with.
