No, the definition of Bio-degradable is that Biology breaks down solid, Think Compost.

While Aluminium will break down over time, it is a long, long time and not Biological action.

Can aluminum cans change from biomass to compost?

No, aluminum cans do not change from biomass to compost. Compost is dark-colored, fresh-smelling, nutrient-rich organic material. Aluminum is inorganic even though the element can rust and smash into such small pieces that it over a very long time supplements the elements (of which it is not one of the essentials) and minerals in soil.
