Search Head Cluster : How are per user search concurrency limits supposed to work in SHC?

How are per user search concurrency limits supposed to work in SHC,

for example:

If I have a user concurrency limit of default 3 and I have 3 members in a SHC, will that user be able to run 9 concurrent searches? I see in 6.3.2 it works this way. Do we really intend to allow this or was it a bug and we should only be able to have the user run 3 concurrent searches no matter how many cluster members ? How are ad-hoc vs scheduled treated in SHC ?

Yes the user should be able to run 9 searches.

given that 3 of that nodes are able to run scheduled searches

Regarding adhoc searches, since they are not managed by search head cluster instead handled by individual nodes.So the quota they have is of individual node quotas
