Does the replace picklist value trigger automation?

For the replace option on the picklist field, the new value I'm changing to has some automation that would normally run. If I replace the value, then I don't want that automation to run. Do I have to disable it first, or do Apex Triggers/Flows not run when the replace option is chosen?
Hi Luke,
did you get an answer to that question? I have the same question and I am afraid replacing a picklist value will trigger automation. Thanks!

Hello, Unfortunately I didn’t, but from my testing none of the automation I was afraid of triggering ran. I can’t say for certain whether it’s only some or all that won’t run. It seems likely to be all though.
