It's not on by default.  It's not currently even built by default.  Scroll down:

   - Tor now has initial support for automatic port mapping on the many
     home routers that support NAT-PMP or UPnP. (Not yet supported on
     Windows). To build the support code, you'll need to have libnatpnp
     library and/or the libminiupnpc library, and you'll need to enable the
     feature specifically by passing "--enable-upnp" and/or
     "--enable-natpnp" to configure. To turn it on, use the new
     PortForwarding option.
