They must be using some other technique to access DRM protected audio.But there is no way. Consider WaveRT driver model, there is no way to get between rendering client and the device. So they must use a sAPO, and gotten it signed. For a sAPO that handles DRM protected content, yes you'd probably need to go to WHQL to get the sAPO DLL signed. But all that it takes is for the sAPO to pass the tests required for a submission to WHQL (which should be easy enough), then you're "home". Like.. you don't have to "tell" the tests that there is a "backdoor" in the sAPO that pipes out incoming rendered audio... ;)
You're right. I guess the only way to know for sure would be to install the thing and look for new device entries or changes in the sAPO registrations. And check the signatures.
