Do law schools even see your transcripts?

Or do they just see the LSDAS report?

They are sent the transcripts as well.

The Credential Assembly Service (LSDAS) prepares a report for each law school to which you apply. The school will request the report directly from LSAC. Your report will include:

an academic summary
LSAT scores and writing samples
copies of all undergraduate, graduate, and law/professional school transcripts
copies of letters of recommendation, if applicable

Based on my acceptance letters to date, LSDAS appears to provide a copy of each transcript submitted with the LSDAS report. To matriculate, I need to provide one or two "official" transcripts from the schools I attended because, according to the letters, the copies they received from LSDAS were "copies."

They receive them, but I doubt they look at all of them.
