None Energy Loss Methods?

Does GetTotalEnergyDeposit() consider the energy lost by a particle due to the creation of secondaries (e.g. the bremsstrahlung emission of a photon by an electron) when it returns its answer? The App Dev guide says that Edep is recorded according to "the energy deposited by the energy loss process and the energy lost by secondaries which have NOT been generated because each of their energies was below the cut threshold," which would seem to imply that the energy lost to secondary creation is not recorded, but I want to be sure.
