Technically it works on my device (Kobo Touch with latest firmware) ... with the big caveat that, assuming you are using normal font sizes, it is VERY hard to hit a footnote link with the accuracy required to activate the hyperlink. Most of the time the dictionary will pop up instead. Thus hyperlinks work technically and in theory but are ergonomically more or less dysfunctional as far as footnotes are concerned.
You may have more success though with hyperlinks presenting a larger target like article titles ...
