If the specified database is mounted when this cmdlet is run, the database is automatically dismounted and then remounted, and is unavailable to users while it's dismounted.

I was able to run the command I posted and it does dismount the database temporarily, even when only changing the log file path.

It totally makes sense since Exchange works in a write ahead mode so every transaction is written to the log files before it gets committed into the database so you can't manipulate Log file location and not affect database.
