Yes, unless you also give the -a option.
The code on master after 1.0.27 has two more options that can be used,
-D and -l.  Please check the source for details.

Request 10 tells saned to exit.

When run with (x)inetd or systemd, it is those daemons that (re)start
saned whenever necessary.  If you start it yourself, you're the one that
has to keep it running, with a -a option.

Hope this helps,
