The short answer is "no." Strictly speaking, the Linux kernel provides little more than a direct interface to the hardware it is running on.

Though this question is not at all related to ubuntu... Have a look at this Mac spoofer for andorid. It allows you to change MAC address of your rooted android phone till you reboot your device.
