The FMC plans the T/D based on the route entered by the flight crew. Most crews, if operating into an airport that they know, will enter a route that is close to what they expect ATC to do rather than what the flight plan says while retaining the option (using the FIX page etc) to modify the route back to the flight plan as required.
