I believe that when you grow an N-fixing plant, no matter what you will get some additional N in the soil. If you chop and drop the top of the plant, what you drop is going to add N to the soil. Some say the nodules will fall off and add more N to the soil too. I'm susupicious of that- I would think the plant would just use them to make more leaves. Some studies show plants and soil buggies share nutrients, so there's another possibility.
