(The syntax of that last sentence is pretty mangled; I can't understand
Think of it this way:
If a device was not attached before the reset, we don't want
to clear the connect-change status because then we wouldn't
recognize a device that was plugged in during the reset.
If a device was attached before the reset, we don't want any
connect-change status which might be provoked by the reset to
last, because we don't want the core to think that the device
was unplugged and replugged when all that happened was a reset.
So the important criterion is whether or not a device was attached to
the port when the reset started. It's something of a coincidence that
you only observe warm resets when there's nothing attached.
