PIN demanded but not accepted unless I restarted

Hi  I tried to unlock my G5s XT1797 handset today and when attempting fingerprint was prompted for the PIN with a help text stating that the PIN was required every 72 hours. However, entering the PIN resulted in a still locked screen that would not accept the fingerprint. I took a bug report but was apparently not able to save or submit it  

 

I then restarted the handset via the power button and the PIN was accepted at boot up. 

 

Do I have to use the PIN a least once within every 72 hour time frame to avoid having to do a restart to unlock the handset again?

My handset is on retapac, fully up to date with Android 8.1.0 and security update 1 October 2018
