Default kill any unit in one hit?

the soul devourer upgrade says that if a unit fails a leadership test after suffering an unsaved wound that it is instantly killed regardless of toughness. does that mean that a unit like high marshal halbecht or chapter master seth can be killed in one hit if they fail their leadership test?
And what about fearless unit? do they pass this specific test automaticaly?

Well, there is instant death.
basicly if I fire a meltagun at say, a guardsmen, then he suffers instant death. this happens because the strength of the meltagun is double the targets toughness. you need to roll to hit, wound, take saves (number of wounds has no effect) so you roll a dice and any number exsept one and he dies.

Well in the rulebook the definition of fearless is:
Any units which are fearless always pass morale and pinning tests, reguardless of modifiers.(they may still go to ground after the pinning test if you wish)
