Does the file .storage/lovelace still do anything (in Yaml mode)?

multi-file searching for the presence of some scripts in the config, said file in the topic title was found, with endless entires no longer valid, and for a very long time I must add to that.

Does this file still have any relevance to the config at all? I so, why isn’t it updated to reflect the current Lovelace config? I am using yaml mode, so maybe this is only used in UI mode?

For the sake of experiment, I deleted it from .storage, and after a positive config check restarted.

All is still well…
