no, it doesn't seem to be the same as Cerebus Retcon. Cerebus retcon is about the tone of a work (going from "silly" to "serious" and saying "we've always been this way"), whereas this would be going from "parody/satire inspired by some other work" to "work", completely independent of whether or not the tone shifted as well.

Haven't we had this trope discussed before? It came up for similarities with Indecisive Parodybut we decided to keep since this is an intentional trope about a distinct change in set aims.

Considering that debate, i don't see how it could be seen as Cerebus Retcon for the reasons above.

I would think that if it were a real trope, it'd actually be linked from somewhere.
