Yes they work. Funnily enough they work on most bait/bread & butter species. Legally you can only fish the rig baitless, or with 2 baited hooks only.
In all fairness though, it's easy enough to tie a 2 hook rig of your own, using a red long shank hook with a glow bead sliding onto it. Works just as well as a sabiki imo.
