In brief: Yes
Since pulmonary edema is commonly due to heart failure, controlling heart failure with beta blockers is beneficial.
Some people can get worse and have worsening edema due to beta blockers. Beta blockers will not help if edema is due to non heart related issues.

In brief: Indirectly
They are of no benefit for pulmonary edema.
If the pulmonary edema is caused by congestive heart failure, beta blockers are used to improve the heart's performance and may indirectly improve pulmonary edema.
