If I eject an encrypted (with FileVault) drive in Mountain Lion, has it been locked, or is there more I need to do (like physically unplugging it)?

When I check the ejected drive using diskutil coreStorage list the drive is indicated as "Unlocked". Is it still accessible without a password to someone with access to my machine? – raxacoricofallapatorius Aug 17 '12 at 20:20
