Nope. That's direct instrument bouncing, not Transform (e.g. "freeze").
Transform bounces the instrument clips to audio clips in place (same sizes, positions), creates a new audio track, places the new combination clips (midi and audio in the same clip) on the new audio track, unloads the instrument or audio plugs completely (optionally with both of course), and destroys the midi track. It literally "Transforms" a midi track into an audio track, and back, including turning a single midi track into multiple audio tracks if it has multi outs, and back to a single midi track on unfreeze.
Additionally, you can edit frozen bits, unfreeze, and keep your edits... and extract the midi data directly out of any frozen audio bit to a midi track.
No "daw war" stuff, just correcting bad information. People very often confuse boucing or stem rendering with freezing when they're really two different things.
