Yes, it will be counted as dravya hinsa of panchindriya jeev.
But, when we look at the bhav hinsa aspect, there exists a difference of sankalpi/virodhi/aarambhi/udhyogi hinsa. Also abhipray plays a larger role.(kriya, parinaam aur abhipray)
Also these types of cases involve a larger context.
Thus, for such complex circumstances, it is not possible to provide a generalized answer.
Depends on situation to situation and particular cases.
