Are booleans in .conf files case sensitive?

I am troubleshooting an issue with an app and the searchoperatorKV error I am receiving is:

Invalid key-value parser, ignoring it, transform_name='my_transform'.

When investigating the transforms.conf file, the transform in question looks like this:

# transforms.conf
[my_transform]
   MV_ADD = True

My question is are the boolean values true and false case sensitive within the .conf files?

Boolean values can be set to True or true. Check if any invalid attribute for stanza my_transform in transforms.conf using btool commands.

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk btool check
$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk btool transforms list --debug
