TLS is an authentication system. Session encryption is the responsibility of the application. Most TLS using systems I'm aware of (HTTPS, SMTP/STARTTLS) use SSL encryption. That doesn't mean all do. To confirm if your application does so, use tcpdump(8) with a large snaplen value to capture packet content.
