You're certainly right about it not being in surround. But a
surround system will usually pick up any "difference" present in the
audio of sound tracks (or even CDs) and reproduce it as surround.
After all, what a surround system does is to create delayed/echo
sounds for the rear speakers which your brain interprets as defining
a space of a certain size. So if there's REAL echo or delayed sounds
bouncing off of objects and captured during filming, a surround system
will send them to the rear speakers...sometimes with pleading
effects. (Now I'll duck and wait for nit-pickers...) :-)
