how netfilter handles fragmented packets???

In ip_output.c file ip_fragmet function when create a new fragmented packet given to output(skb) function. i want to know which function are actually called by output(skb)?
Is that function ip_finish_output? if yes then fragmented packet has not gone through netfilter hooks specially NF_IP_LOCAL_OUT?
so does that mean fragmented packets not travel through netfilter hooks?
