Snapvault just copy snapshots over to the destination volume from the source volume?

I basically understand how snapvault works and procedures between the source filer and destination filer, basedline has to be created first.

 

I have one question though:
Assuming I created a hourly schedule on the source volume, it will be 5 retention and between 8am-8pm. On the destination volume, I created a hourly schedule as well. Let's say I keep 10 retention and between 8am-8pm

 

In the end of the day, I have 10 snapshots, they are respectively taken at 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,12pm, and 11am. My question is, are these 10 snapshots are just identical copies which are taken at the same time on the source filer and transffered from the source filer?

 

Please help to clearify this concept. Thanks!
