Default [Q] flash stock rom with pit file, what about knox

If I flash a stock rom (G900FXXU1ANE2 (BTU)) and repartition with a pit file, would it trigger know void 0x1? I want to remove the branding from my german o2 Branded S5.
Phone: Nexus 5 (16 GB, Black)

I guess no since Qualcomm should mount an HW protection efuse so if you switch to 0x1 u wont reset that counter. Maybe there is a chance for Exynos based device seems those cpu don't have an efuse protection.

So as i understand KNOX will trigger only when flashing recovery, rooting phone if we want to debrand and flash BTU firmware it will not trigger and stay on 0x0?
