Question re biochemistry of sugar in yeast-raised breads

A friend makes a "honey-wheat" bread that contains yeast, and honey. I did not detect any honey taste in the bread. My recollection is that yeast will start digesting the honey before it digests the wheat--which I suspect means that the honey works mainly to feed the yeast.

Does anyone here have enough knowledge of this stuff to explain it in more depth?
