Sorry for my wrong information. After an look at the source code can see 
the conversion.

I have made a few tests in past with RGB images in CMYK-Pdfs (without 
colormanagement) and print them on my calibrated proof system, the 
images looks horrible, because the conversion is only made mathematical, 
not against an ICC profile.

A big sorry
