Question on Smart Preview size in CaptureOne

In C1 I see you can change the size of (smart) previews (or whatever they call them) that are generated at import.

What happens if I have an image that's, say 4000x3000 pixels, but I have C1 set to create previews that are 5120 pixels.

Does C1 just create the full preview for images that are less than 5120 pixels and then reduce the size of images that are larger than 5120 during this process?

I'd like to maintain the highest level possible for previews in C1 as I'm going to start not having the RAWs available as I'm running out of space and don't usually need all the RAWs with me when I travel.

(And I've been told that C1 uses smart previews all the time, instead of the original photos.)
