Docker CLI/API compatibility

So in reading the docs, it says “Using Rancher through Native Docker CLI”, so outside of rancher just being aware of events that occur on any Docker host it is managing, is Rancher itself (i.e. the manager) actually implementing the Docker Remote API whereby you can set your docker client to point to the rancher manager host(s) with -H similar as with Universal Control Plane or Swarm and run a container and Rancher handles actually putting it on one of the agent nodes?

The root of my question I guess is Rancher itself compatible w/ the native docker tooling and API’s, vs just being aware of events triggered by native docker tooling against docker hosts it is aware of.
