Default centrifugal clutch question, is it true?

yesterday i was checking out info on theses centrifugal clutch set ups when i came across an older thread that stated when the engine was shut down the centrifugal clutch locked to the motor and you had to pull in the clutch lever to roll or peddle the bike. is this true? i'm asking because i usually use the pedal as a kickstart so i can warm up the motor before i go for a ride(i have the kickstand that picks the whole back tire off the ground). if this clutch truly locks to the engine when its off then i should still be able to kickstart it as usual, correct???
