If two bodies are connected by a revolute joint, does torque transfer between the two bodies?

I am modeling a truck/trailer and I was wondering if I need to include a plugin for the transfer of forces/torques along the fifth wheel, or if Gazebo's physics engine already accounts for these torques. In this case, my fifth wheel is modeled as a revolute joint joining the truck and trailer links.
