Default Rootstock citrus

Will the seeds from rootstock fruit produce the same plant?
So about twelve years ago I planted a satsuma I bought online, after about a year the plant was destroyed to the ground. The plant grew back from the ground and became a thorny terrible looking whip like bush.
I never cut it back or did anything with it. Over the years this plant had grown to about 12-14 tall and has survived everything thrown at it. One year we had a deep freeze w temps as low as 8 degrees that lasted over a week.
Last November I looked up and it had two green fruits, in December I picked two yellow lemons that taste and look exactly like a store bought. The plant now has multiply blooms so maybe I will get some more fruit.
So back to the question if I try and grow the seeds will the plants produced have the same cold hardiness and fruit?
