It's not hard to test.  When I was unsure if my device was doing this
or not, I set it to snap to road, and then took it for a little walk
along the edge and then cut some corners in a park, then looked at the
tracks.  For my specific device (not a Zumo), I discovered that the on
screen and main track log snapped to the roads, but I could also turn
on a background data saving log that saved the raw data, which was
quite usable.
