Will stanzas inherit index from [default] in inputs.conf?

In the inputs.conf, I have the [default] stanza with the index and host like below.

[default]
index = prod_dc
host = C100

Will other stanzas following the [default] stanza inherit index and host from [default]?

For example, will the following work?

[default]
index = prod_dc
host = C100

That is correct. If you specify index in [default] stanza, all inputs where you've not specified the index attribute explicitly, will use index defined in default stanza.
