Of course they do, if one of these apply:

1. Your film is colour-balanced.
2. Your scanner is colour-balanced.
3. The light isn't even.
4. The Levels thingy in point 1 has destroyed all the grays, just
   because (e.g.) there was less blue in the shadows than there was

I'd say that normally _all four_ apply. The numbers lie. The Curves
correction is an attempt to make them truthful :-)
