I can't say for sure, but there's no reason I can think of for floating plants to do any gas exchange with the water. I know that floaters generally take off growing because it's easier for them to perform gas exchange in the air, where CO2 and O2 will very easily come and go without needing to be exchanged at the surface of the water.
