No, all orders sent to the exchange can be viewed by all data subscribers in real time. Icebergs are handled on the customer side, and "hide" the full size by breaking a large order into smaller lots that are sent to the exchange only when the prior lot gets executed. This is entirely unrelated to block trades.

Awesome. Clears that up. Thanks for explaining.
