5D Mark IV AF Servo Question

Quick Question:

 

Regarding my Canon 5D Mark IV, do the settings in the AF menu (the purple one) work in live view mode, or only viewfinder mode?

 

For example:  If I'm taking a picture of an airplane landing when using Live View (I need to use LIVE view becasue of the physical position I will be in), if I use FlexiZone AF (single point) to follow the plane, I keep the plane in the frame, and set the AF mode to Case 2, "Continues to track subjects ignoring possible obsticals," if the plane momentairly goes behind a building or a road or somethingl, will the camera hold the focus on the item?

I believe Live View and optical view have different AF engines.
