I would think so, in spite of the fact that people claim that even though they run ICE at least once a week they still get system check every once in a while. But as I mentioned I suspect that those aren't really system check they are more likely just normal ICE startup events, but the driver didn't connect the dots with recent activity like harder than normal accelerating or doing regen on a full battery. If ICE is running at least once a week there would seem to be no reason for it to start up ICE during EV driving to do a system check.
