Do ceramic V-sharpeners remove metal from knives?

Do the ceramic sharpeners on the v-sharpeners like this one actually remove metal from blades or do they just straighten the edge like honing steels?

    There are 3 slots there. The first one Does remove metal from the knife. The other two hone the knife to a sharp point. Do they Remove metal? Yes, but a minor amount to get a sharp blade.

    They definitely remove metal and leave a spray of fine filings everywhere.
