Auto reboots during open user sessions

If a user has a drive mapped to a server and the NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers registry key is set to 1, will the server reboot if an update requires it or will it wait until the user has disconnected the mapped drive?

The server should still reboot. The NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers-setting is for when a user is actually logged onto the computer, not if a server has an open user session.
