    You could try exporting a small test tree and compare your input and output to start to answer your own question.

Gramps 5 allows you to adjust the content of the GEDCOM to suit the intended use (identified by the software to receive the file), so the precise answer to your question will depend upon the option you choose. Some targets will involve more 'loss" than others. If you intend to use (plain vanilla) GEDCOM 5.5, then anything not specified in the standard (see http://phpgedview.sourceforge.net/ged551-5.pdf) will not be included.

For more detail about export options refer to:

Also read the the "Lost information on a GEDCOM export from Gramps" section.
