It shouldn't.  Stat altering moves, historically, don't change this way.  Amplifying abilities, historically, only affect damage.

No.
(and yes...kinda)

Sound-based moves used by a Pokémon with Punk Rock are boosted by 30%, and Pokémon with Punk Rock take half damage from sound-based moves.

Therfore, yes, it technically does. Exept that Metal Sound is a status move (doesn't do damage), so the effect does nothing. So in reality, no it does not.
