Fedora provides it in installer, though not as default AFAIR. But they enjoy thinking of themselves as of bleeding edge, so their example may not be indicative. Arch still doesn't provide boot time fsck for btrfs (there is a package in AUR, but that is unofficial anyway). Given that is rolling release and pretty much targetted at "powerusers", this should be indicative.
