BQ20Z45-R1_BQEASY-SW: gg file and cell balance active

Part Number: BQ20Z45-R1

Hi,
Please let me confirm about bq20z45-r1.
Is the following understanding correct?
If we create the gg file as described in SLUA903, the value of UpdateStatus will be 0x02.
<- "Before saving the Golden File, set Update Status to 02 to disable IT gauging, set the Qmax Cycle Count to 0, and set the Cycle Count to 0. "
Immediately after this gg file is applied/programmed to a mass-produced product, the value of UpdateStatus is 0x02.
That is, cell balance is not active. (=UpdateStatus is not 0x0E.)
In order to bring the battery in this state into an active cell balance state, we must again follow the steps described in SLUA903 to change the UpdateStatus from 0x02 to 0x0E.
If the manufacturer or distributor performs these steps as an adjustment before shipping, cell balance will definitely be activated.
If this is not the case, it is expected that "this step will be realized through actual use (charging/discharging and leaving the battery) by the end user."
(Once cell balance becomes active: UpdateStatus=0x0E, that state will be maintained no matter how you charge/discharge or leave it, unless you manually edit UpdateStatus.)
If there are any mistakes, please correct them.

Regards,
