Default Can Color Sep Software sep solids?

Might be a dumb question but will color separation software separate colors in solid form or do they rasterize color? To Clarify: if I had an image in vector and there were several solid colors, would it be transposed to raster for halftones to make up the colors or would it keep them solid? Would it be that I just have to change colors to black separately in Illy? I am not sure I am making myself clear but maybe someone will be able to translate.
