Is "AssetBundlePatterns" active when running expo start?

I have an application which is requiring images from the local fileSystem.
I have a performance issue which is detailed here in my Stack Overflow question.

I will try a few things to overcome it, including “expo optimize”, running the “production” apk (not in develop with expo start), and using AssetBundlePatterns - as adviced to me in stack overflow answer.

So right now I am trying the AssetBundlePatterns, and I couldn’t find enough details in the documentation.

My question is: Is setting “AssetBundlePatterns” in the app.json will enable and activate the images bundling when I am using expo start, and openning the app with the QR code scanned by my phone?

Thanks a lot!
