No, Mr. The swap area is used basically only during the activity of the system. I say basically because there is a project in development which wants to save the processing state before the shutdown to restart at the same point it was halted, without all the boot startup procedures. This project will use the swap area to save the state. Only in this case, the swap content will be used in the next boot.
