Default fuel shutoff solenoid

So my thermo teacher was saying that carbureted engines are bad because as the engine shuts off fuel still flows through the carb and washes down the cylinder walls, which introduces wear upon startup. But I just had an ephipone (I spelled it how I want to pronounce it) that Cruisers have a fuel shutoff solenoid. This would eliminate that problem right?
