" I don't know if they actually do this"

Most readers can stop right there, as you have admitted you don't know what you are talking about.

However, they way you can tell during viewing whether production tried to manipulate the laughter is to look for cases where the next line is laughed over or if the next line was delayed for the laughter. If the writers actually had the ability to prevent the audience from stepping on their precious dialog they would have used it.
