No, just the filename you gave in DirctoryIndex. It won't be served
due to your Handler setting but acts as a dummy for the requirement of
mod_dir (existing file). But the way via DirctoryIndex and mod_dir
causes a subrequest lookup for the index file, which you can avoid
with the RewriteRule of course.
