Default Keg Carb/Growler Question

Just a newb questions regarding keg carbing and growlers.

So I force carb in a keg, If I was to carb in my keg and place the contents in a sealed growler would it lose carb over time?

If its a full growler, and the cap properly seals, it should last as nearly as long as bottled beer would. But if you pour a glass, it won't last too long at all.

If you fill it using counter-pressure so very little CO2 gets disturbed, it'll behave very much like a 2 liter of soda.
