[dm-crypt] keys in memory?

Hi all,

When a system has been configured and it's using encrypted LUKS partition(s), are they keys visible in memory?
The question is relevant when deploying these types of partitions to a cloud provider, where the provider's hypervisor has access to all vms' memory.
Any insight into this will be greatly appreciated.
