Yes, one baseheating tube comes off of the exhaust manifold, then down into the base of the stove under the ash pan where the exhaust is directed down into the base then makes a loop around the baffle, toward the front of the stove, then makes a 180 turn back to the rear then escapes out of the next tube which goes back up to the pipe collar then finally out to the stove pipe.
