Does Shopify have text compression (gzip, deflate or brotli) enabled?

I work with quite a few stores and one thing I noticed in common on the Lighthouse report is this opportunity:

Enable text compression: Text-based resources should be served with compression (gzip, deflate or brotli) to minimize total network bytes.


Which leads me to ask, is Shopify coded with this built-in? It seems like an easy task to achieve and doens't make sense to not have it enabled. If not, is there a way to enable it myself?
