NimbleOS upgrade with encrypted volumes

We are looking to enable encryption and want to use secure boot mode.

We have a CS220 with dual controllers running 2.3.14.0.

 

I've read around a bit...

Nimble OS 2.3 – Implementing SmartSecure Encryption at Rest

I understand that if we power off the array we will need to enter the passphrase to bring the encrypted volumes online.

 

My question is... does the restart of a controller during a NimbleOS upgrade also required the passphrase to be input? My initial thought was no, but couldn't see this documented anywhere.

If I've missed a document please point me in the right direction.

 

Thanks in advance
