If you have both a x.py and x.mpy file on /flash or /sd, does the x.mpy file take precedence and get loaded, and the x.py file ignored?

It seems to be vice versa:

https://docs.micropython.org/en/latest/ ... files.html
When searching a particular directory foo.py is looked for first and if that is not found then foo.mpy is looked for, then the search continues in the next directory if neither is found. As such, foo.py will take precedence over foo.mpy.
