shutter shock on a tripod?

If shutter shock existed wouldn't it show up when mounted on a tripod? I shoot a fair amount on a tripod and I never see it, IS on or off (yes I know it should be off, but sometimes forget).  My tripod shots are perfectly sharp unless I misfocus.

I do find, however, that the IS in general is hit and miss for me handholding at lower shutter speeds (hence my preference for a tripod if shutter speeds dip).

The IS is absolutely amazing as a viewfinder stabilizer when doing handheld manual focus.
