No. The orthogonal setting means that the specific (group) factors are uncorrelated. The advantage of bi-factor EFA over Schmid-Leiman is discussed in Section 5 of the Jennrich $ Bentler (2011) article referred to in the Mplus Version 7 UG.

Okay, so the rotation is oblique between general and specific factors, but orthogonal across specific factors only?
