Default printing images

Hello folks,

I'm very new to all of this and am trying to learn on the fly as it were. I've got a book cover that I want to have printed. It has a Photoshop-created image as a background (currently still in layers) & will have text applied on top (in InDesign). What I'm wondering is whether I should be at concerned at all about any layers in the image lying below other opaque layers. My own intuition says that once the image is flattened the covered parts of what used to be layers basically cease to exist. During the printing only the visible colours of the image will be printed, correct? It won't overprint the top layer over the bottom?
