What does mean "decipher and load" in this context?

If I find-file a .pbm in emacs -nw, what I get is the same that I would
get opening a .gif, i.e., a buffer with binary contents, in Fundamental

In what sense is emacs -nw able to decipher pbm (which is in image-types)
differently than gif (which is not)?

Either we're miscommunicating, or I'm lost.  I'm talking of a case where
window-system is nil, so no image can ever shown, B&W or otherwise.
