I seldom use mv_check, so I can't say for sure from experience. It is
not entirely analogous to mv_click, and so one can't assume it does what
mv_click does.

My guess is it would not.

Forget guessing: I just tested it, and it does not. If mv_form_profile
fails, mv_click, mv_check, and mv_order_profile all will not execute.
