No, packets translated by nat/rdr/binat will not automatically pass and
create state. The packet is first translated, then the filter rules are
evaluated. If they pass the packet, a state is automatically created. If
they block it, it's blocked and no state is created. The wording
'implicitely create state' might need some rework, the point it's trying
to make is that the pass rule will create state for translated packets
even if it doesn't have the 'keep state' option. But you still need that
pass rule. And it needs to match the packet _after_ translation.
