True Curve Geometry Support?

How does ArcGIS for AutoCAD handle true curve geometries?

For example: Say I have a polyline feature class in my SDE database containing and arc, circle or ellipse. If I serve it up to AutoCAD as part of a feature service...

  • How is this represented in AutoCAD?

  • Is the true curve geometry preserved or is the geometry converted to a series of short line segments?

  • Does the geometry change when I edit the feature?
