I don't believe that's quite how it works. I don't think it needs to vaporize the way boiling water vaporizes, to be entrained in the smoke.

Of course, liquids have vapor pressure at any temperature between melting and boiling. I think there is no question that whatever vapor there is can be carried by convection along with the hot gases.
