Confirmed with the Page and the Navigator decks. Using the "Close Sidebar Deck" button action they look to briefly close, but immediately reopen. 

Conversely the Page, Styles, and Gallery deck do close.

Sorry, typo. Should have read the Properties and Navigator decks. 

The Page, Styles and Gallery decks all will close.
