[Mikrotik] RBxxx switch or hub?

This question came up a few weeks ago in the midst of a discussion about 
the RB493/450 etc.

Someone (I don't remember who) asserted that when using the built-in 
switch capabilities of these routerboards, that the actual function is 
like a hub, not a switch.

Anybody know for a fact that this is the case?

What about the RBs that are actually supposed to be a switch (e.g. RB250)?

Would be a shame if they really are acting as hubs.
