List all of yum's options?
You mean as in yum --help?
If that's what you meant, then No, that's not what it does.
If you have a space between yum and tab, then it will
only list the names of the files or dirs in  your current working
If there is no space, then it will list all the commands
that start with the word yum, based on your PATH
