I think it would really depend on the particular terminal. Sakura (a Unix terminal using the VTE library, like Gnome Terminal) copied the tab literally:

$ printf 'tab\ttab|sp   sp\n'
tab	tab|sp   sp  <== COPIED
$ hexdump -C
tab	tab|sp   sp  <== PASTED
00000000  74 61 62 09 74 61 62 7c  73 70 20 20 20 73 70 0a  |tab.tab|sp   sp.|
