No, all digital. CDP is the publisher on Steam, not Atari. Valve gets their cut, but that's it.
At any rate, since CD Projekt derives a lot of revenue from other sources, like distribution of movies and third party games in Eastern Europe, maybe they are still doing just fine even if The Witcher 2 was not very profitable.
I'm not sure TW2 is "not very profitable". CDP is going for relatively high price sales for a long time. I doubt the projection was higher than 1.7M units for close to full price within such a short time. They'll easily double or triple this number down the line, for a lower price.
