Default do yeast consume the cold break?

I normally notice a significant amount of cold break in my carboy as it is filling, but when I rack the finished beer and collect the yeast the break seems to have disappeared. Is it there mixed in the yeast pile or do the yeast consume the break?

My understanding is it sinks to the bottom and becomes part of the trub on top of the yeast cake.

The cold break is made from proteins in the malt, so I can't see why the yeast would eat that.

You're right,it settles to the botton with the trub & the yeast on top of that.
