No, it doesn't. It caches the hosts file.

Yes it does. See your own quote:

Nscd provides caching for accesses of the passwd(5), group(5),
and hosts(5) databases through standard libc interfaces,
such as getpwnam(3), getpwuid(3), getgrnam(3), getgrgid(3),
gethostbyname(3), and others.

I understand it means that it uses that function, yes, but only the hosts
database is cached.
