Prankmonkey,
Your question is a tad confusing, but let me give it a shot...

Yes, by default, if you set folder redirection, offline file/synchronization 
occurs as well. If you have Offline Files enabled, synchronization will occur 
when a user logs off/shuts down their laptop and that places (yes) a copy of 
folders & files locally on their system. Once re-connected to the network, 
synchronization will reoccur and any file/folder modifications made locally 
will be updated on the network. So yes, the only way the network file would get 
updated is for the user to reconnect to the network.

Subject: [gptalk] Folder redirection and offline files relationship

We currently have offline files enabled for our laptop fleet and we also
utilise folder redirection, redirection My Documents and (ahem) Application
Data. It is my understanding that once folder redirection is enabled then
those folders that are redirected are set to synchronize. If we turn off
offline files how does folder redirection work if the user is offline? In
other words, if they are not connected to the network, yet we have offline
files enabled do the files simply stay on the local system and never get
synchronised or ....?
