[R] body of non-visible function

Is there any possibility in R to see the body of the “non-visible” function, for
example “princomp”?
If I do :

> methods(princomp)

so, I get that princomp.default and princomp.formula are non-visible functions and
body(princomp.default) doesn’t show it.

In particular, I guess I have a very naïve question… I’d like to see how scores calculation is implemented in the function princomp. Because when I multiply my data matrix on the matrix of loadings
>data.matrix %*% princomp(data.matrix, scores=T)$loadings

I get different result than just doing

>princomp(data.matrix, scores=T)$scores.
