RTL in any case

Reading Arduplane parameters description, we found:

Short failsafe action (ArduPlane:FS_SHORT_ACTN)

The action to take on a short (FS_SHORT_TIMEOUT) failsafe event in AUTO, GUIDED or LOITER modes....

Long failsafe action (ArduPlane:FS_LONG_ACTN)

The action to take on a long (FS_LONG_TIMEOUT seconds) failsafe event in AUTO, GUIDED or LOITER modes...

My doubt and question is what happen if FS event take place while flying in another mode? Is there a way to have certainly that in any of the other flight modes plane will automatically switch into  RTL mode?

I am a new Arduplane user and not sure if my is a basic or stupid question for you
