It would actually create a master file that contains BOTH a KF8 version and a MOBI version (along with the original source). The capabilities of the device/app you're viewing the finished product with (or the device emulation mode you're using in Kindle Previewer) will determine if you see the KF8 or the MOBI version.
If you're viewing the output with a device/app that doesn't support KF8, you're going to see the MOBI version of the book (which doesn't support embedded fonts, and requires quite a bit of hoop-jumping to create a link that isn't
underlined). Same goes if you've chosen a device-mode in Kindle Previewer that emulates a device which doesn't support KF8.
