Basically, when I unlock a hard drive (which was encrypted through Disk Utility), does the actual data physically stay in its encrypted form on the drive?

I unlocked the hard drive and began secure erasing it.

However, let’s assume I did not secure erase, but rather normally erased it. Would the data physically present on the drive be there under its encrypted form?
