chromatic aberration in b&W?

-If you shoot a b&w jpeg, will chromatic aberration still affect the picture?
I think so: 1. all the pixels which record color are mapped onto shades of gray.

2. if the pixels which represent different colors indicate the same brightness of the different colors, then the fringing of color aberrations will map a dot in the subject onto a disk in the image.

3. if the pixels which represent different colors are indicating different intensities, then a point on the subject will appear in the image with a halo(s).
Does this seem accurate?-

For the guy who says just take pictures: I enjoy the reviews and find this kind of thing interesting too.
