I don't understand the question.  preview-latex runs LaTeX and dvipng
or GhostScript.  Most of this is done with the usual asynchronous
AUCTeX mechanisms (meaning that finishing the job happens with output
filters and process sentinels, completely disconnected from the
functions starting it).  This renders a PNG file.  This PNG file is
then turned into an image using the normal display properties.

There is no lisp code turning symbols into images.
