in thread postgresql bytea escaping

Don't the lo family functions create OID in your pg database, which are references to the file system? I chose bytea, because I know the binary data will typically be less the 10 mb, and I didn't want to have the extra mangement headache of keeping the external file system synced. If I am wrong in understanding the way the lo functions work, please correct me.
