Sure... they get converted depending on teh code runnign on the WLC.  Newer code is capwap and older code is LWAPP.

Here is more info:

Access Point Communication Protocols

In controller software release 5.2 or later,  Cisco lightweight access points use the IETF standard Control and  Provisioning of Wireless Access Points protocol (CAPWAP) to communicate  between the controller and other lightweight access points on the  network. Controller software releases prior to 5.2 use the Lightweight  Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) for these communications.

Thanks,

Scott
