Do servos return to zero on disable?

Really, what I said in the title. I can’t recall if servos return to the zero position when the robot is switched from operation to disabled,and I’m at home where I can’t check.

A standard hobby servo won’t return to zero, but also won’t fight to hold its position

Using the WPI Servo Lib, I found that the Servo we used just returned the last value it was set to whenever we used .getPosition() , despite its actual position changing. This was while it was disabled. It could be specific to the servo we were using though.

Servos don’t feedback their position.

My bad. With the same servo above, the arm itself did not return to zero. I think that helps?
