All the attachments that were included in the individual messages sent
to a list (i.e. not removed by content filtering) are in the MIME
format digest.

Attachments of types other than plain text are scrubbed from the plain
format digest and stored in the archive and replaced by URLs to the
scrubbed attachments in the plain digest.

So yes, plain digests do not contain the attachments, but do contain
links to the attachments, but MIME digests contain the attachments in
the digest.
