Constant Preview on Panasonic cameras

I am new to the Panasonic M43 system and I was wondering what exactly does the Constant Preview do?

From the lens sounds that emanate when using this option, it seems like it is similar to the DoF preview button on DSLRs i.e. the aperture stops down to give an accurate representation of the final image both in terms of exposure as well as DoF.

So if I set this option OFF, clearly the DoF in live view will not be the same as that in the final image (unless shooting wide open).  However, is the live view exposure identical to the final exposure with Constant Preview set to OFF?
