Calgar has the ability to make any unit in the army decide whether they pass or fail a morale check (let me know if I am worng with this.) If a unit loses combat, and the player decides to automatically pass the test, do they suffer a No Retreat?
I would believe not. According to how you stated it (and how I think its written), the unit is still subject to the Morale Test, but Calgar's special rules allow you to CHOSE to pass or fail the test. So with the way I am looking at, the unit still takes the test, unlike fearless units that auto-pass the test and are subject to the No Retreat rule.
Space Marines are like gravity. It's not just a good idea. It's the Law.
In my opinion i believe they wouldn't be subject to no retreat. Although reality could be right because in the rule book it says "they may be subject to some other special rule"(under the no retreat entry on pg 44 of the brb) which might refer to this kind of rule.
From page 44, no retreat : "It's not uncommon for units to be immune to Moral checks for losing an assault, or to automatically pass them for some reason..."
Choosing to automatically pass your moral check is automatically passing your moral check, hence no retreat is invoked.
No where in this does it say do they automatically pass, it says that you may choose to pass. This also means that you may chose to fail as well, which further makes passing the test NOT automatic. In short no they would not suffer no retreat wounds.

it's not as if they were fearless or as if they were caught as they ran, it's exactly as if you passed a leadership test, as it would be if you used combat tactics to fail one. So no, No Retreat is not used in this circumstance.

You are trying to argue that being forced to automatically pass a test and choosing to automatically pass a test are somehow different with regards to the 'automatically passing' element.
