ADM1176-2 reset

I am using the ADM1176-2 (latching) part on a new PCB design.  I am wondering if setting the SWOFF bit over I2C can reset the latch state the same as toggling the ON pin?  The datasheet isn't entirely clear on this aspect--on Page 16 Table 11, it states that toggling the SWOFF bit is equivalent to deasserting the ON pin, and  page 13 says that once latched, it "attempts a hot swap only when the ON pin is deasserted and then asserted again."  Is toggling the SWOFF bit the absolute equivalent to physically asserting/deasserting the ON pin (will it reset the latch)?
