Sometimes reading the documentation might help :

If you look at your service file, you'll notice that a 'reload' means
sending SIGHUP to the master process for the particular case of nginx.
I'll leave the conclusion to you, assuming that the doc is clear enough.

As a general thinking methodology, considering implicitly that other
webserver (especially modern ones with huge shifts in paradigms) behave the
same as Apache only leads to deception...
