Any filesystem that lives on spinning disk can and will get fragmented. The EXT filesystem family (the most common on Linux) tries to mitigate fragmentation, but the fact that platters are spinning under heads means physics will eventually win and a very full HDD will struggle to maintain I/O performance with even the most efficient filesystem.

Best,
Andy
