So the short answer is, no, mortal sins are not forgiven.
From CCC 1532:
The special grace of the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick has as its effects:
- the forgiveness of sins, if the sick person was not able to obtain it through the sacrament of Penance;
This comes from the words of St. James:
Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders [presbyters] of the Church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord ...] and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
Of course, even though this Sacrament acts ex opere operato, nobody can be forced to accept God...that is, I do not think this is in any way a "guarantee" of salvation...but that's just my thought.
