Short answer is ... No, it probably will not carry over.
Longer answer... The HW30 has a very cool feature where each variation on input mode has its own settings. This means the PJ has far more "user settings" than just the the 2 obvious ones. (at least it's cool once you understand it... until then, it might be a pain in the a$$)
This means that 1080p/24 frame packing is different than 1080p/24 or 1080i or whatever. If your guy never displayed 3D content, he hasn't changed these from their presets.
But... it's probably just an issue of entering the same settings. For example, when the 1080p/24 frame packing source you should match the contrast, brightness, gamma, color space, color temp of your calibrated mode.
The above is assuming you want the same calibration for 3D as 2D. If you don't, the HW30 will happily let you have a different configuration.
