Yes. And also cleanup result stuff, if any. Pretty much the same notion
(reset() vs destroy() aside for moment) as with statically initialized
pthread primitives and corresponding _destroy() calls like
pthread_mutex_destroy() that can be used for "pedantic" cleanup of
statically initialized pthread objects at process termination to please
leak detectors (resources may be acquired dynamically on first use) or

That's up to the client. For example, in some module_fini().
