It probably will, but since SSS is not in the 1.0 official feature list, it's not to be expected before Octane 2.0
If I'm not mistaken Radiance also said so.

Seems that one-sided translucency / simple backlight ist already working....
The Octane review by evermotion claimed that.... creating a node setup in Graph Editor and joining diffuse shader with RGB Spectrum operator as a transmission controller, we can produce a translucent material.

An example of setting up translucent material. To see the effect, pathtracing must be turned on
