FXOS8700CQ on FRDM-K64F-AGM01 board calibration questions.

All,
I hope this was not already asked and answered somewhere else. I am using NXP's FXOS8700CQ magnetic sensor with FRDM-K64F-AGM01 board. I have downloaded from NXP website the Freedom Sensor Toolbox (CE) V2.5.0 software for NXP's 9-axis orientation sensor demonstration project, specifically. In the main form, I click the "start" icon, then I click the "Sensors" tab, allowing to view the real-time calibrated magnetometer sensor frame data, Bc[X], Bc[Y], and Bc[Z], in micro Tesla. 
Question #1:
As soon as I move the magnetic sensor (FXOS8700CQ with the Freedom board), is auto-calibration done automatically and continuously without stop, in this demonstration project? 
 
Question #2:
 
If so, according to document AN4459, I understand that this will be the hard-iron calibration only (which is fine with me).
Will this be in the "calibrate-then-compensate" state, or in the "calibrate-and-compensate" state? These two states are differentiated in AN4459.
Thank you very much,
-Shawn
