In all cases, the decoding happens within the iDevice. What gets sent out the Lightning cable is raw PCM. 

Due to how the app is structured, changing the bitrate does not immediately take effect. It will take 1-3 songs for the change to be reflected. If you want to make comparisons, after you make the change, tap 'Live Stream', then 'Sync to Web Stream'.

I have just discovered Radio Paradise. Wow. 

I have a technical query that somone may be able to help me with.

I am am listening using the IOS app with an external DAC Audioquest Dragonfly through Bowers and Wilkins P7 headphones.
I have selected Flac as the output stream.

Does anyone know if the app sends the flac stream via the lightning cable,
or does the app convert the flac prior to sending to the lightning cable.

One thing I have noticed is that I cannot tell any difference between the lowest quality and the Flac stream.
However whivhever stream I choose the sound quality is superb.

Hopefully soon on Alexa-enabled Sonos products. Others probably not for a while (except through Bluetooth via one of our phone apps).

Correct - except that we don't currently have a PC (Windows) app. FLAC will be supported in our new browser player (currently in testing).
