No. If you want automatic update, you need to use the same broker id.
Many deployments use EBS to store their broker data. The
auto-generated id is stored with the data, so if a broker dies they
install a new machine and connect it to the existing EBS volume and
immediately get both the old id and the old data.

If you use a different broker id, you need to use the
replica-reassignment tool to move replicas to the new broker.
