Does a Category act as an index ?

Lets say I have 100 000 event frames with attributes like isNew and isEdited and I want to find the isNew ones.


I am currently looping through each event frame to retrieve which ones have the specific attribute set to True.


Lets say I now have a category "isNew" with 50 000 out of the 100 000 event frames in total with this category.


If I do an event frame search on the isNew category, will AF still check 100 000 records to see if they have the isNew category or does the category act as an index ?
