Doesn't Interactive Brokers use simulated stops in futures? In other words, they keep the stop working on their servers and once the trigger price trades, they then send the order as a market order into the market place?

Compared to a broker that puts the order directly into the exchange, the fills can be very different in the event of a dramatic market event (for example, the Swiss Central Bank decides to end its peg with the Euro).

It depends on the exchange and product so you have to specify which product and the exchange. If the exchange allows a type of order to be native, then its native. If not, then it can be simulated. Here is a link to the order types allowed by the EUREX as an example.
