I think what you are talking about is withholding tax? If you were to withdraw money from the RRSP they hold back tax money upfront (10% under $5k, 20% between $5k-$15k and 30% over $15k essentially).
The banks hold it back? I understand the heavy taxation on it but was under the impression that it was up to the estate to do the taxes and not the bank to withhold the money. If the banks do it they must provide a slip of some sort for taxes?

Edit: Also possible that I'm thinking of beneficiary payments on RRSP and the bank not holding back taxes.
