Does Robo-FTP's script language support recursion?

Robo-FTP 3.8 and later

Yes, currently the script language does support recursive routines. See the Help file for details: Using Functions.

Robo-FTP 3.7.x and earlier

Robo-FTP 3.7.x and earlier do not support functions calling themselves recursively.

In theory, the EXEC command could be used to open a new instance of Robo-FTP and pass that instance a script file and up to nine parameters. That instance could then close and return a single numeric result, or save a more verbose answer to a text file.

While this could be used to mimic a recursive routing, it is not very memory efficient, and is generally impractical.
