Thanks for visiting the help forums :)
Whilst a playlist can certainly gain likes and re-post stats, because it is more of a "container" for a collection of tracks and is not a track itself (if that makes sense!) the playlist doesn't gain any play stats. Obviously the tracks within the list will gain a play stat for each person that listens to them.
Hope that clarifies it for you although I accept its maybe not quite what you were hoping to hear.
