Not really. When part-combining does its job, there are no voices or staves 
yet. \partcombine rather takes two music expressions and decides to which 
voices the note events (and of course also all other events in the music 
expressions) are sent later on. \partcombineAutomatic and the other functions 
simply tell the part-combiner where to send the events.

Yes, that's correct. If you use \partcombineApart (which tells the part-
combiner to send all events of the first music expression to voice one and the 
events of the second expression to the second voice, even if they could be 
combined to a chord), you need to use \partcombineAutomatic to return to the 
default part-combining mechanism.
