No. Type III SS is a considerably stranger beast.

summary() looks at the s.e. of individual coefficients. For 1 DF effects, this is often equivalent to Type II tests (not III, except when they happens to be equal), except when looking at main effect terms in the presence of interactions (in which case things get parametrization-dependent.)
