Are Views just stored SQL Strings or something more?

I know views are stored in the sqlite_master table as:

type      view: 
name      "myname"
tbl_name  "myname"
rootpage  0
sql       "mysqlString"

Is this all they are or is there some way the compilation of the view is retained/stored for the next time it is run?  

I know some databases store Views in raw and compiled to speed things up e.g MS Access (I think) SQL Server
