Not formally. The ruling would still stand without ever having been directly challenged but it would be rendered irrelevant.

Not formally, okay, but a pocket veto is still a veto, you with me? Nevermind judicial procedure and legalese. If Roe no longer has force of law, if it loses stare decisis power, if cases are thenceforth decided along other lines and according to new precedent, then it will have been overturned.

Roe could be upheld and abortion banned .. Roe has provisions that self-nullify the ruling if “medical science” advances and shows the fetus to be a distinct human life etc. etc. etc.
