dumb question

I have what I think is obviously a dumb question, but a guy told me this the other day....  

 Can the transfer plates get hotter than the radiant tubing inside them?

Can a radiator get hotter than the water feeding it?

    As I understand it

    the act of heating is an attempt to equalize, and nothing more possible.

    Just a guy running some pipes.
