[clamav-win32] freshclam using the --daemon-notify switch

I have a question I hope someone can confirm for me: if I have ClamAV (from http://w32.clamav.net) running as a Windows service, and 
I run freshclam using the --daemon-notify switch, will it cause clamd to reload with any new 3rd-party sig files in the /data/ 
directory, such as .NBD files?

When I run freshclam with that switch, it shows itself checking the main sig files (daily.cvd and main.cvd), but it doesn't say 
anything about the other .NBD or .HDB sig files that I have in my /data/ directory. I want to make sure that these are being 
reloaded into clamd too.
