Yes, the cycles are stopped before the exhaust valve is closed. If someone wanted to extrapolate, you could determine from the valve speed if there was any overlap based on the CA designation at the bottom left corner of the video.

That designation explains what angle the crank is at relative to center line during each event in a rolling time table.
