Thermodynamically-speaking does K, in addition to being the equilibrium constant, indicate standard conditions?

K is the equilibrium constant for a reaction at a given temperature; therefore, its value changes depending on T. Unless you are told the K value you are given is at standard temperature (273K), you cannot assume it is standard.
