Obviously false.  preview-latex might be added into the load-path by
your site file, but that appears to be about it.

(load "preview-latex") does not load preview-latex.  Take a look at
that file's contents.  It merely defines the autoloads for
preview-latex so that any references to preview-latex functions will
then cause preview-latex to be loaded.  In addition, it enters the
preview-latex setup function into LaTeX-mode-hook.

In short: preview-latex is most certainly not loaded, and not even
initialized, automatically by the site file as you claim.
