I don't think so. OpenBSD is secure mostly because the code is audited, which is tedious, and they try to adhere to best practices of coding for an insecure languages.
IMO, redesigned for security means from the ground up.
It's the difference between a maximum-security prison and a fenced stockade with dogs and frequent prisoner checks.

In short, designed for security means it should be hard for you to accidentally create a security hole while still being completely functional.
