Will an expunged arrest from FL show up on a BC if I move to another state?

Another question that lawyers can't answer:

According to my expungement, all records of my criminal arrest is destroyed (including those kept by the FBI). Only the FDLE keeps the records. Therefore, if I were to move to another state (such as CA, NY) and do a fingerprint background check, would an expunged record show up if it's not in the FBI database?

I know if they ask questions of history of arrest for the license I have to disclose it, but some only ask for history of convictions. I'm hoping that the expunged arrest won't get in the way of me finding employment.
