AD7768 Reset in Pin Control mode

The Datasheet contains some confusing information about the reset after power-up:

Immediately after power-up, the user must apply a soft or hard reset to the device when using either control mode.

Which includes the pin control mode. A few lines further down it sais:

Pin control ... ensures a known state of operation after power-up

The FAQ SYNC vs. RESET also does not state WHEN a reset is really necessary.


Since my application is very space restricted I would prefer not to add another line for the reset if not absolutely necessary. Since I am using pin control mode which ensures a 'known state of operation after power-up'  do I still need to perform the reset? What start-up conditions need to be met so the reset is not needed?
