In my experience, some of the Telco providers use a BIS solution which connects to Exchange via the ActiveSync process. In this case, some of the policy may apply, but it will be on a case by case basis depending upon how the provider has implemented BIS.

In a BES scenario, the in house BES server usually applies it's own policies on the devices.
