No, no changes are made to AD. All you are doing is updating the Central Management Store & SQL Databases

Publishing by itself doesn't modify the AD, but after you have made changes to your topology, the changes will not take effect until they have been published and  enabled. And Enabling the topology made changes to every container that contains computers running Lync Server services and some topology configuration is stored here
CN=RTC Service,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=domainname,DC=local

From Lync 2013 Topology Builder, Publish AND Enable is done in one click.  You could use the cmdlets, however, Microsoft recommends using the GUI Topology Builder.

What the system does, when you publish AND enable the topology in Lync 2013 using the GUI Topology Builder is, it verifies that the correct AD Prep was done and verifies the permissions.

Again, NO (Zero, Nada, None, No Way) Topology Information is stored in AD.
