Default Washers for seat belt anchor attach bolts

Hi, everyone,

The plans include the following bolt/washer/nut callout for the seat belt anchor to bulkhead attachment:

AN3-5A BOLT (6A for the outboard anchors)
AN365-1032 NUT

Wanting to confirm which washer goes against the bolt head and which one goes against the nut. Can I assume, as a general rule, that the callouts in the plan always list the pieces "in order", in other words that the washer that is listed just under the bolt call-out is the washer that goes up against the bolt head?

I would assume the specified washer thickness(s) are to accomodate the bolt length and desired 3 threads showing after the nut is tightened down. I don't think order of washer placement matters.
Maintain lots, upgraded - repaired - & modified more, rebuild a few, & built some too.
