Yeah, my reading of: 

"Mandatory. If the firmware is reset to factory, then any customized
Secure Boot variables are also factory reset. If the firmware settings
are reset to factory defaults, all custom-set variables shall be erased
and the OEM PKpub shall be re-established along with the original,
manufacturer-provisioned signature databases."

means you can just reset back to default and get the factory provided
keys back.
