No, only the non-Heavy units need to kill their own mounts; the Hobbos are now Heavy units and thus the Dwagons they are riding cannot maintain themselves in the air with them on their backs, so those, they are just going to fall down. We can pretty much guess all the mounts handily killed by the harvest procedure will be quickly Decrypted once they are on the ground.
This forced fall bypasses the zone barrier that they can't currently cross.
The immediate goal here seems to move all GK's forces to the ground in the Atrium so they can wipe whatever is left to defend it and gain control of the zone, allowing them to move and attack another zone next.
Won't win the battle by itself, but you can see how it's one of the steps.
