Startup without Encoder Offset Calibration

In 2019 there was the answer:
“No, you need to have correct offset to do any type of control. This is because this is needed to commutate the motor.”

Is it still so?

No, you either need to do an encoder index search if you have an encoder with index signal or you can avoid all of these steps if you have an absolute encoder.
