Is this a philosophical question? If a client broadcasts a probe request and no war driver is around to sniff it .....

Yes. If a probe is sent by a client a probe can be detected by any device monitoring (ap or otherwise). Probe requests are broadcasted on all channels (for the clients active regulatory domain I believe).
