I can confirm that the Transportation process only alters the energy of a charged particle in an external electric field. ( I note that I am G4Transportation's principal author.)
It generally limits the step only when a boundary is encountered between volumes. During such a step the only processes that can affect the particle are those which have a continuous component (or, in Geant4 parlance, an 'AlongStep' action).
In other steps as well, in addition to the process that limited the step (which is printed) other processes contribute to the energy loss of a track.
