Yes, this is the code that does the PANICKED -> PAUSED transition:

        if (runstate_needs_reset()) {
            runstate_set(RUN_STATE_PAUSED);
        }

This is to move the system out of a runstate that needs_reset(), and
make the subsequent "cont" work instead of hitting this:

    if (runstate_needs_reset()) {
        error_set(errp, QERR_RESET_REQUIRED);
        return;
    }
