If it doesn't why not?
Leaver level is not effected by custom games.
Leaver rating is also NOT increased by reports for "AFK".
This is due to the multiple account services they have in place. Reports are the tribunal system, which is completely separate from the leaver system.
If AFK reports increased your leaver level, people could abuse the automated features built in to the leaver system.
Example: Don't like someone on your team when you're a 4 que? All report him AFK to increase his leaver rating, and have him issued an automated ban.
Hence they are separate systems.
As such, I always personally make it a point to play a custom game fully through after a PBE patch update, (I do this even on live) to ensure I don't potentially ruin a match made game for 9 others. I would recommend all others get in the habit of doing the same!
