Ah, though perhaps the difference is "when scrolling" vs "after scrolling".

For the latter, I would definitely say "yes".

For the former, I think it's sort of up to implementations.  In addition 
to the change I linked to, we never update hover state more often than 
about every 16ms, so clearly as you scroll some stuff will pass under 
the pointer without entering hover state.
