Yes I'm sure. It's not all the time, but it's what it's capable of.

It restarts when you release the brake, the front camera sees traffic moving forward, or it's needed to power the vehicle's electronics.

I don't think that is correct. From my understanding the car can't run under hybrid, the 48v is used for the start/stop system.

Edit: The above is referring to the post saying "uses the hybrid to drive forward until the engine restarts", I took it that is what you were referring to as his post was referring to it.

For clarification: The 48V cannot drive the vehicle, just provide a low speed coasting function.
