FIPS_selftest() Usage

For an application linked to FIPS capable OpenSSL,

1) After calls to FIPS_mode_set() and FIPS_mode() both succeed, is it good
practice to call FIPS_selftest()? Or is this redundant call?

2) Did come across documentation which only hinted that FIPS_mode_set()
calls FIPS_selftest() internally. Is this correct?
