32 bit float point is kind of an "invisible" mixer, if you will. It's not handled by the converters, it's a completely internal process. It's nice for a few reasons, but most importantly is how much more headroom the software has. Basically, with 32 bit float processing, you can never clip internally. This gives you infinitely more breathing space in the mix.
