State table with a rule change

If pf has been in operation for a while and a new rule set is loaded what happens to the states? For example there could be two rules to allow packets (rule A & rule B) in the old rule set that have just created two tcp established states (state A & state B) that could naturally time out in 24 hours. The new rule set just loaded retains rule A but no longer has rule B. We would like state A to be retained but state B should be removed. Will this occur?
