Default [Q] Does CDMA version require 176.44.1-type update?

Does the CDMA version of the Moto G suffer the same issues, when running 4.4.2, that were fixed by the recent 176.44.1 update?

If a similar update is going to be released for the CDMA device, I don't want to have the phone flashed to PP until the update is available, as I understand any OTA update will break the flash. Correct?

Thanks!
