Router pipeline not relevant for inbound channel events?

I’m trying to make sure I understand how regular, stateless http(s) requests and incoming events via channels differ with regards to the router.

Would it be fair to say that:

  • Regular, stateless http(s) requests are processed through whatever pipeline of plugs is defined for them in the router

  • Incoming events via channels are not, as they do not go through the router (if one disregards the initial render of the page that uses the channel)?

Thank you.
