Can a stripped EXIF data be restored?

These were the only answers I could find.

From what I understood from both these answers that it is possible like any deleted image could be restored unless the used EXIF tool removes the actual bytes containing the data .

Typically an EXIF stripper does remove the actual bytes containing the data (if you prefer after having gone through an EXIF stripper usually the filesize becomes smaller, so there is no way that they can be recovered

Does EXIF tools do so, at least the ones recommend by Privacyguides?
