/me is an "action" command taken from Internet Relay Chat (IRC -- for further info http://www.mirc.com and/or http://www.xchat.org may be helpful).  How it's handled in a Jabber client is, if I'm not mistaken, up to the client--the server doesn't do anything except pass along the "/me whatever" within its standard XML envelope.  So it's not a question of what Jabber does, but rather one of what does WinJab (in your case) do.
