IOW, if I somehow have the same temperature ramp over the same time period in both directions, will I wind up with the same frequency and phase, or will the frequency revert but at some phase difference?

most oscillators exhibit some degree of hysteresis - the mechanical 
mounting puts stresses on the crystal, if nothing else.
