Windows Server License allocation

I have Windows server 2019 DC licenses and i am assigning it to cluster host around 5 host.

As you know that Windows Server 2019 DC is core based license and minimum 16 core licenses are required per server. I can easily assign these licenses to 2019/2016 DC  products as metric is set to number of processor cores and minimum license requirement is set 16 in snow but for Windows server 2012 DC the metric is set to number of processor and minimum license requirement is set to 2. 

 

So in this case will snow assign licenses from WS 2019 DC to WS 2012 DC correctly or i need to change metric to number of processor cores and minimum license requirement to 16?

 

Similarly for older version will snow assign licenses properly like 2008?
