Is the copying of backups to a network location separate?

When the "Copy Backups To Network Location" option is used, Is it run on a thread separate from the actual backup process?

It seems to me that it would be preferred that copying the backups would happen independent of the backup process.

    The copying is performed as part of the backup process for all backup types other than for transaction logs.

    Transaction log backup files are copied in a separate process.
