No.  If you have purposely disable Nagle in the tcpprofile (set it to modify and left at disabled state), then the AutoNagle will not take effect is my understanging:

From the article:

"There are users out there that want to always minimize packet counts, or always minimize latency. For them, we still have the choice to enable or disable Nagle's algorithm altogether."
