No, the windows really are closed. They no longer exist
in any way. The application is still running, though, and
its menu bar will appear if you bring it to the front
(in MacOSX this is done by clicking on its dock icon;
in classic MacOS it was done by selecting from the menu
of running applications that was available in the top right
corner of the screen).
