Yes, for certain filters. Check this:

Whether a filter supports this doesn't seem to be stated in each
filter's documentation, but I can see this note from yadif:

$ ffmpeg -help filter=yadif
This filter has support for timeline through the 'enable' option.

I don't know much about deinterlacing, but I believe to have heard that
some deinterlacing filters cope well with noninterlaced material.
Someone else would need to comment on that.
