Sharing wine with the FOH & sending it to the BOH at a restaurant?

Everybody knows that to get out of a corkage fee, share your wine with your waiter and or chefs, but, to any chefs/waiters at a semi-upscale/upscale restaurant, if one sends back a glass of wine does it get wasted, or does it actually get consumed. I assume it may depend on the owners of an establishment, but as a generality, what is the deal with this whole thing. I just got a 3L of a decent Chilean Syrah, and I definitely dont have enough friends to share it with (as they all drink the cheapest beer/wine/liquor available) so I was going to go to a favorite spot of mine, that has treated me especially well in the past, and get a glass to every person in the place who would like one.
