IE Version reported when user has Compatibility view

How is internet explorer version reported when user has the site in compatibility view list?
We see a lot of IE8 and IE7, can that actually be IE11 where users have set browser in compatibility mode and by that sends a User Agent String with e.g. MSIE 7.0.
Or is the tool smart enough to understand the actual version "buy magic" ?
