As far as I know: yes, until you manually end the physical backup mode.

What if another user has started a nbackup on the same database? It is
risky to just assume that the error is caused by a failed/crashed backup
and then disable the physical backup mode; that could potentially corrupt
the backup by the other user. I'd suggest that executing the "alter
database end backup" should be an explicit (manually started) action.
