I actually tried it both ways.

In one case, I halted the minnowboard but left it plugged in, then I hit the “reset” button and it acted as I described — found the stick and was willing to boot from it.

In the other case, I halted the minnowboard, then unplugged it from the power brick, then reconnected it to the power brick. same results as above.

I’m not sure what it means, but that’s what I saw.
