Not > The uplink is considered active, but it will not participate in the active NIC team until assigned to a port group.

When you add an uplink, to a vSS it becomes active for its port groups too. Read the link below it states

“By default, new adapters are active for all policies. New adapters carry traffic for the standard switch and its port group unless you specify otherwise.”
