dumb question about tar

Hello all,
When you tar a file (i.e. a backup) to a destination disk, does tar build
the file on the destination disk, or does it create it in a tmp file,
memory, etc then move it to the final destination?  I have to think it
builds it in the destination location, but want to make sure.
