Software creates a virtual 3D model. Details like showing beam pockets and or a cross section of a stem wall that might show a beam pocket, j-bolts, bottom and top plates, wall studs are created in a cross section camera (usually a back-clip cross section camera view) then 2D CAD objects are added to that view to represent beams, beam pockets, j-bolts, framing is added to such a view by building framing and turning on the "framing" layer in display options. You cannot actually cut a beam pocket but you can make it look like you  have in plan and cross section views and is commonly done as I have described above. A set if plans is a graphic communication, not a virtual actuality, it is intended to communicate the actual but again, no one is going to live in a virtual home.
