At least on mutual funds, Vanguard does. They identified a wash sale for me that I didn't realize at all. I had transferred some money from a fund to an IRA, same fund. Thus I wasn't paying much attention to the share price and the idea of a wash sale never occured to me. However, when the paperwork arrived, they identified it as a wash sale--it had washed against shared bought with dividend reinvestment!
