Yes. When an includable special page is included, it outputs in the
same manner, but what it *doesn't* know is that $wgOut is a different
instance of the OutputPage object, swapped in for that one use. Once
the execution function returns, the content from that OutputPage is
grabbed and poked into the parsed output.

This is probably not ideal, to be honest; we'd really like to keep the
parser as atomic as possible. I would suggest, in the long term, we
move to all includable special pages having a specific include() or
similar member which returns raw HTML.
