can driver loft be decreased by 1/2 degree and maintain square face to target instead of being open?

that can invite some conversation…;-)
my two cents, if I decrease the loft of a driver, I understand it closes the club face (I understand that you’re asking if it can open the club face), however when I set my driver to strike the ball, I still set it up square to the target line, so it kind of negates whether the face is closed. By doing so, I think I move the loft back to the original value.
Not sure if my logic is right, but it’s a good question :-), should be a good discussion.
