Do absorbers/traps cause less sound to travel to your neighbors?

Would have all corners fill with monster traps, and had broad band traps for some reflections as well... how would this impact the amount of sound bleeding into other rooms of the house?

Obviously, the much more notable effect is the acoustics in the room... but as an added bonus, does an amount of coverage "absorb" a noticeable amount of sound?

I mean, when I talk to one of my panels, it eats my voice up like a deadzone.. so does that still have that impact, when the coverage isn't to much as to ruin acoustics of the room (ie, make it too dead and sterile)


I'm not asking if it soundproofs (lol) but if there would be an audible impact

If anything your neighbors would not even hear the difference. Soundproofing is a totally different animal.
