Continuous HS shooting reduces shutter shock?

My understanding is that in order to support live view, m43 bodies keep the shutter open.  When the shutter button is pressed the shutter closes and then opens to start taking the image and then closes and opens again to continue live view support.

Since the continuous high speed setting on these cameras do not support live view that would suggest once the shutter button is pressed, the shutter would close, then open and then stay closed after the first image.  The 2nd image up to the last image would only require the shutter to open and then close once.  The last image would require the shutter to open, then close and finally open again for live view.

Does this make sense?  If so this could help reduce shutter shock on the images after the 1st in a series of continuous high speed shots.
