Pushing a full factory config vs factory resetting? [cnPilot R200]

Is pushing a full config to a device equivalent to doing a factory reset from within the device interface then pushing the same config?

Specifically: If I pull a factory config from a defaulted R200 and set it as a template, can I push that template to other devices and have them behave like a factory reset just occurred?

It is not the same,

Factory resetting apart from applying config, it does  other actions, like cleanup of  logs  and cookies.

Is there a procedure through cnMaestro to factory reset an R200? I have a device that will not accept a new template without a factory reset first. I expect factor resetting will be necessary with the future firmware updates and changes. I'd like to avoid on-site work to update R200 devices.
