Does Vphere with ova template download VMDK locally from remote URL

I have a question we use this vsphere module vsphere_virtual_machine . I was wondering if someone can confirm that when we use this module with ovf_deploy and a remote ovf url, does it download the vmdk locally first and then upload it, I did take a look at the code and it seems to me that it downloads the vmdk locally before uploading it to vsphere. Can anyone please confirm or deny it
