No, the preview itself does not generate any temporary drawables.
However there is a utility function for the plug-in to generate
such temporary drawables, when it finds that more convenient,
but in that case it is the responsibility of the plug-in
and not of the preview. It can function perfectly without
any temporary drawables.
