Does Changing a Username or Organisation Name Provide Redirects?

Can someone help answer the question?

Does changing a Username or Organisation name in Dev.to provide redirects from old post URLs to the new ones?

Or, do the URLs stay as they were at the time the post is published?

It looks like the name in the URL is irrelevant. Both of these links go to the same article.

I have changed my username after posting a blog or two, and from what I remember the URLs don't dynamically change and I had to update the paths where I was using them.

 

I wondered whether that was the case, the username and original title making for a unique identifier as opposed to being dynamic URLs based on the username who posted the content.
