When a mono signal is chosen as an audio track’s input, the track will record mono samples; otherwise, it will record stereo samples:

Signals in the track’s device chain are always stereo, even when the track’s input is mono or when the track plays mono samples:

Mono is turned into stereo simply by using the identical signal for left and right channels. When a track is routed into a mono output, the left and right signals are added together and attenuated by 6 dB to avoid clipping.
