Does 'Digital Out' on a MacBook bypass the sound card?

I'm wondering whether Digital Out on an MB or MBP means that raw bit stream is passed through the optical interface unprocessed bypassing the soundcard or whether the soundcard's chips are involved.
A clean unprocessed audio stream which is essentially the data on disk is preferable, as the Mac soundcards are inferior to what most receivers can produce.
