Does Cura generate G2, G3, or G5 commands?

I was just looking through my Marlin configuration and see that Arc Support is used to process arcs via G2 and G3 gcode commands, and Bezier Curves via G5.  I have looked through several of my Cura generated gcode files and there are no G2, G3, or G5 commands in any of them.  One was a cylinder so I would have expected many arcs in that one.  So if Cura doesn't generate these codes I can disable them in Marlin and save a little memory.

Cura does not support curves. It only loads polygonal models which don’t have true curves; only estimations of curves by multiple flat polygons.

Thanks.  That's what I thought.  I just wanted to make sure.
