Does sandbox account not generate authorization code for refund transactions?

I am developing an app that requires authorization code for transactions. I verified that authorization codes are generated for refund transactions in real authorize.net accounts but for sandbox account, during development, i noticed that when i did refunds, the authorization code was missing in the refund transactions. For auth/cap transaction the sandbox acccount authorization code is present. Only for refund transactions the authorization code is missing for sandbox accounts. So, i was wondering if it is the issue with the account type that is preventing the authorization code from being assigned to refund transactions. Is it because of the sandbox account that the authorization code is not being generated and whether this problem will disappear once i switch to real authorize.net accounts? I appreciate your help! Thanks!
