unclear docs




Hello!

Could somebody please explain what 'core.autocrlf overrides core.eol' means given that we have the following statement in core.eol docs:
"Sets the line ending type to use in the working directory for files that have the text property set when core.autocrlf is false".

I would like to know which line endings I'm supposed to get in the working tree if I have core.autocrlf=false and '* text=auto' in .gitattributes on windows. I get CRLFs  which is consistent with the last quote but I don't understand what 'core.autocrlf overrides core.eol' means in this case.
