What is the precedence for identical stanzas within a single conf file? Is this a valid configuration?

Hi,

I'm facing the situation that there is the identical stanza twice within a single conf file.
E.g.
authorize.conf

[role_admin]
srchIndexesDefault = main

[role_admin]
srchIndexesDefault = _internal

I know the documentation for Attribute precedence within a single props.conf file, but this only describes the precedence defined by ASCII order. Not if the stanza is identical.

Verifying the configuration with btool, I get that the last listed entry rules. Which makes sense.

So my question is: Is this a valid configuration (despite the fact that this should be avoided)?

Thanks and best regards,
Max.

If it wasn't valid, btool would have flagged it. As you say, this situation should be avoided.
