Kindle ignores tab character- does this include calibre's option

I like to read my books with no space between paragraphs and a tab at the beginning of each paragraph. Fewer page turns, more on each page, etc. I understand that the Kindle ignores tab characters in a book. If I do a conversion using Calibre that gets rid of space between paragraphs and adds in the space at the beginning of the paragraph, is that space a tab character or a number of space characters? I just want to know if Kindle will detect and print it or if I should leave my library in the other format. Thanks!

I think it’s an actual indent, not spaces or tabs.
