if I have IPSEC tunnels to and from my sites, do they bypass any ACLs on those sites

ie:
I have 172.16.1.0 and 172.16.2.0. They have a tunnel to themselves over the internet
If I have an ACL on the 172.16.1.0 firewall, that says "deny ip any any" applied to the inside interface, will the tunnel still work?

With Cisco ASA's the command " sysopt connection permit-ipsec  and sysopt connection permit-vpn " allow packets from an IPsec tunnel  to bypass ACLs on the security appliance.

The tunnels will usually not work without it.
