The changes the film modes make may be saved as metadata to be used by PP software (OLY software will do this, rather like I/C processing but after the shot).
If you are shooting raw and B/W the embeded jpg i.e preview will show you the result but the RAW file won't/can't because no processing as such has taken place.
As you need some sort of PP software to handle/process RAW files it is usually just the click of a button to remove all colour information and convert to JPG, leaving the RAW untouched.
I don't shoot JPG so don't ever use film modes, B/W or scene modes, other than to set the film mode to natural as this gives me the best preview for exposure setting and controlling highlighs via the camera screen.
