No, if -e is provided, watchdogd execute the command 'cmd', if the command succeed it resets and restarts the watchdog. Without -e, watchdogd tests a stat("/etc",xxx) syscall.

If the watchdog is a hardware watchdog, you will not get any log or crash dump, just a hard reset. Which watchdog are you using?
