The version with only wi-fi will non have the GPS module, so you could not use the Follow Me mode.

iPad mini 4 wi-fi does not have gps module so follow me will not work but you can buy a separate Bluetooth gps module on eBay for around 25 bucks, they work great!!

I have not tried to use Follow Me as I am still a beginner.

However I do tether my iPad to my iPhone's Personal Hotspot when I fly the drone.  I assume that the iPad then uses the iPhone's GPS.

Question:  If the iPhone and tethered iPad (attached to the remote controller) are kept on my person, will the Follow Me mode work?

It would not be as effective, since a non cellular data device does not always guarantee built in GPS. If you really want to use the Follow Me feature, you should use a device with cellular data built in.
