Kind of. The way is works is:I've heard scene content usually hits usenet first, even before torrents or file hosts, but I don't know if that's accurate. a lot of people don't seem to know about usenet at all.
First the scene releases to their topsites obviously, which only a select handful of people will have access to. Then after that its autosnatched by bots run by usenet indexers and 0day torrent trackers. 0day trackers are essentially the same as a usenet indexer but for private torrents, they focus on scene content and speed rather than p2p content like most other trackers do. TL or AR will get the scene releases around the same time as top usenet indexers. Then from there it spreads to specialized private trackers, like ggn/ptp/btn/whatever depending on the content type, and then to public trackers, ddl sites, etc.
