Sage is indeed preparsing the entries before sending them to Python. To know what Sage is doing exactly with what you are typing, use the command preparse, with your Sage command passed as a string:

sage: preparse("3")
'Integer(3)'
sage: preparse("3+2")
'Integer(3)+Integer(2)'
sage: preparse("x^2")
'x**Integer(2)'
