in theory: Yes - in practice: No.

Why? Because:

a) there are parallel host routes without damping and
b) the feature minimizes _gateway switching_(*)

(*) The overall "cost" of switching from one NAT-GW to another is higher 
than the cost of a theoretical routing loop. Default route switches without 
damping, if same GW is addressed.
