Transmission and track chain

I added a "transmission" block in the URDF to describe the model of the tracks of my robot... My tracks are triangular, with an active sprocket and two passive sprockets. The active sprocket is rotated according to joint state message in my "control node". I expected that this kind of description resulted in a automatic joint state update of the passive sprockets in Rviz, but I think to have not understood very well how "transmission" works.

Does transmission work only in Gazebo?
