[openssl-users] FIPS mode on Windows

I have a question: On Windows, should OpenSSL FIPS automatically enable FIPS mode (FIPS_mode_set(1)) if the FIPS registry entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\FipsAlgorithmPolicy\Enabled is set to 1?

This is to emulate the Linux behavior - if I understand correctly, if Linux is configured for FIPS mode, OpenSSL automatically enables FIPS mode.
Thanks in advance,Alessandro
