    Paragraph from this link.

    Update 1: Google is more or less ready with the initial prototype of Chromium on Mac OS X – you can create windows and tabs just like the Windows version of Chrome but the mac version uses a Cocoa UI layer on top. Will updates this page when the official mac release of Google Chrome is out.

    I did some searching, and what I found seemed very similar -- that there is a large amount of the Mac codebase that's in C++ and Carbon, and the UI segment is written in Cocoa. So it's not a pure Cocoa app. I didn't find any detailed technical analyses of the Mac version. You probably would have heard about it if there was a subsequent re-write of the C++ segment to make all of Chrome:Mac Cocoa.
