Yes of course! I didn't think it through.
With micro-stepping selected the controller output looks like a synthesised sine wave on my oscilloscope. It's made of spikes. I've no idea what happens to the waveform when it hits the motor coils but there must be limits to what the inductors will work with. Another 'find out how that works' addition to my 'to-do' list.

This is a chopped drive - the motor inductance smooths it out to approximately sinusoidal current.
