EA bit behavior in burst mode reads

Burst mode read returns a bit identified as the EA bit in each word.  The bit is defined as the OR of all of the bits in the DIAG_STAT register.  This could be very useful information but ONLY as a function of the following question.

 

The description of the DIAG_STAT register (page 15, para. Status) states that the bits (other than Vcc range) are only reset if the DIAG_STAT register is read.  Does the burst mode read also constitute a read/reset of the DIAG_STAT register or is a separate read cycle required specifically to read DIAG_STAT to clear the bits in DIAG_STAT?
