Question: Are Custom Configuration Variables Applied on Image Download or After Connection to Cloud?

Hey everyone! A question, I have a custom configuration variable as shown below.

Is this applied to the image when I download an image for a new device or does the device need to connect Balena cloud before the configuration variable is applied?

The reason Iā€™m asking is that the configuration variable is required to allow access to the WiFi radio for my device, so it would be ideal if the configuration variable just came with the image on download :slight_smile:
