Will K5II-s DR improve with LPF removed?

Will K5II-s DR improve with LPF removed? After careful examination of the noise samples on DPR, the D800E looks to have slightly less noise than the D800 (finer grain noise posing less distortion). I wonder if anything else can be different? With the nikon, AFAIK the filter is still there but electronically disabled, whereas the II-s will have it completely removed. Less stuff in the way of the sensor can only improve IQ, and not in just sharpness. Is there any merit to this idea?
