the obj file which the compiler generates is the final assembly language program or ....?

in simple words:

its like a PE-EXE file but with symbols, relocatable, so that linker can tie it up together

for example:

in obj file call will be:
?  call _imp_something; call 0, and _imp_something defined elsewhere

and in exe it will be:
?  call 012345678h; pointing at IAT or jump thunk
