When have they ever? Sidewall damage compromises the structural strength of the tire. An inner tube cannot restore or compensate for that; it could only retain air.

Apart from that, AFAIK modern wheels are incompatible with tubes (among other possible problems, there is no proper accommodation for the valve stem).
