Digital audio and Sage Volume control

I have an extender connected to an AVR via HDMI or SPDIF. When this is the case I thought that the Sage volume was inactive. But it appears that for certain audio types, like AAC, the Sage volume does have an effect on the system. But for Recorded TV files the Sage volume has no effect.

Why is this?
New Server - Sage9 on unRAID 2xHD-PVR, HDHR for OTA
Old Server - Sage7 on Win7Pro-i660CPU with 4.6TB, HD-PVR, HDHR OTA, HVR-1850 OTA
Clients - 2xHD-300, 8xHD-200 Extenders, Client+2xPlaceshifter and a WHS which acts as a backup Sage server

Sage can control the volume of anything converted to PCM first, so AAC, MP3, FLAC, etc. But things that are bitstreamed (DD, DTS, etc) go out as-is and aren't/can't be modified. Depending on your tuner, most recorded TV will be AC3 (DD).
