Yes, it does effect the image controls but just in the way that you
can't use the internal URL with the scheme
vnd.sun.star.GraphicObject:<ID>. In that case you will need to load
the image first with XGraphicProvider and set the "Graphic" property
instead of the "ImageURL" property.

It would be good to try this use cases out with the Report Builder
with the current master.
