It doesn't say how many, and it does indicate that this extra internal precision was not used for all functions. It does mention using a 13-digit approximation of pi internally, for argument reduction.

some 2^3 results
X = 08000000002000 (8.000000002)
08000000000000 (8.00)
X=07999997770000 (7.99999777)



I'm seeing several differences between these results and Joe Horn's earlier post For which models is 2^3>8?
I'm particularly surprised at seeing the 25 and 25C Return different results, and the 65 getting it right...
