Yes it does

http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/products/collateral/switches/nexus-9000-series-switches/cisco-report-nexus-9508.pdf

The Nexus® 9508 sports a compelling

software architecture that has seen

Nexus® OS (NX-OS) become a 64-

bit Linux-based system supporting

switch programmability, automation,

orchestration and visibility. The

NX-OS now allows for a level of

programmability unseen in the

industry; not only can the switch be

programmed via CLI commands but

now DevOps and NetOps teams can

utilize Bash, REST, NETCONF, XML,

JSON, onePK, and the OpenFlow

protocol to program the switch

externally.

But following link said not.

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus/openflow/b_openflow_agent_nxos_1_3/Cisco_Plug_in_for_OpenFlow.html

OpenFlow is not supported on the following platforms:
Cisco Nexus 9500 Series switches
Cisco Nexus 3164Q switch
Cisco Nexus 9200 Series switches

Ok I cant comment on conflicting documents I don't work directly for Cisco you might want to confirm with TAC then , I only have 9300 here to check physically not 9508 specifically. I would nearly go with the newer document they may have updated since the release of the platform
