I don't know.  On a regular web page, it wouldn't, because I think
Google Images is managed differently, it is not looking for images
that are link, but just for images in the right context.  However, I
am sure Google has some special mechanic for dealing with MediaWiki
websites, so it can 'index' better.

But my ultimate prediction is that it won't make a difference.  I
could be wrong, though.
