really does go through a call to \section, so will pick up any definition that the class file gives, and if you load the hyperref package then it will put in a suitably `active' link from the table of contents. (Which makes an entertaining way of going from html to pdf, preserving hypertext structure:-) You mentioned the amstex bib stuff.
