I typed "camera raw done" in Photoshop's help (hit F1), there was only one hit. I scrolled down, and found this info:
closes the Camera Raw dialog and stores file settings either in the camera raw database or as a sidecar XMP file.
So, what does this mean? that the file itseft is not touched at all (that's one of the main points of using raw), but that all the development settings are stored either in a database, or inside a file that can travel with your raw file.
Or, if DNG is being used, the equivalent of the XMP sidecar is stored in the DNG file instead.
Indeed, a very good advantage of that format.
Also, update to Camera Raw 4.1 to get all the changes explained here:
