Does FAST search incremental crawls ignore items that are updated via SPListItem.SystemUpdate()?

I am observing conflicting behaviors in multiple environments, so I am not sure what the exact behavior should be.

Take a look at this post:

And check if the vti_searchversion property is being updated when you call SPListItem.SystemUpdate(). If not, then it shouldn't be re-crawled as the modified date does not change when using SystemUpdate().
