I'm not up on the precise inner workings of the Smart Key system, but on our other car with remote start, the remote start runs the engine but requires the key to be put in the ignition and turned to the Run position before the brakes are pressed to allow the car to be shifted from Park. If you step on the brake before inserting the key, the engine is killed.
Taking this to the Prius Smart Key system, I would assume that the Remote Start authenticates and starts the engine, but the immobilizer will kick in if the transmission is attempted to shift without the Smart Key fob present.
