Set a default index for all INPUTS within a specific app only

I have an app with a long list of inputs. I want to set them to go to a specific index (let's say index = my_index).
I can achieve this by placing index = my_index under the [default] stanza in the app.

However, will this affect other apps on the forwarder with their inputs set to default?
I deploy this app with a Deployment Server to several UFs.

Eventually I tried it out myself, and found out that the [default] stanza only affects the inputs in it's specific app.

Settings in .conf files are not app-specific, they are stanza-specific. Values in the [default] stanza apply to all inputs in all apps unless overwritten by the [default] stanza in another app that is processed first. btool can tell you what settings will apply.

I think this is incorrect, as I tried it and found out that [default] only affects the inputs in the specific app...
