Yes. The WAV format is just what kb3 takes as input - it then writes the
whole lot out to the CD in (yes) CDDA format, which is to say, not as
files, but as "raw" audio information on the CD.

This is basically what Serpentine does too. You throw WAVs or FLACs or
MP3s at it, arrange them in the order you want the tracks on the CD,
then click "Write to CD" and it writes them to the CD in such a way that
you end up with an audio CD.
