The Terrain Collider implements a collision surface with the same shape as the Terrain object it is attached to.

You should note that versions of Unity before 5.0 had a Smooth Sphere Collisions property for the Terrain Collider in order to improve interactions between terrains and spheres. This property is now obsolete since the smooth interaction is standard behaviour for the physics engine and there is no particular advantage in switching it off.
