Peer-to-peer IoT Edge connection in isolated network

Hi,
I have a scenario in which several peer Iot Edge devices must connect each other, in a private network with intermittent internet connection.
From the documentation https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-edge/offline-capabilities?view=iotedge-2020-11 I've noticed that Iot Edge devices can work offline indefinitely with their own child devices provided that there has been at least one Iot Hub sync.

I would like to ask you if this pattern is also supported in my scenario.
I mean for example:

Iot Edge Device 1 connects to peer Iot Edge Device 2 providing its own identity
Iot Edge Device 2 verifies the identity by syncing with Iot Hub
Iot Edge Device 2 authenticates the Iot Edge Device 1

Iot Edge Device 2 goes offline (from the internet perspective)
Iot Edge Device 1 connects to peer Iot Edge Device 2 providing its own identity
Iot Edge Device 2 verifies the cached identity of Iot Edge Device 1
Iot Edge Device 2 authenticates the Iot Edge Device 1

Is this scenario supported?

Thanks in advance
