Adding new randomized cards

Please look at this quote from Manual:
“One caveat with random order mode: if you review many of your new cards and then add more new cards, the newly added material is statistically more likely to appear [for review] than the previously added cards.
To correct this, you can change the order to ordered mode and back again to force a re-sort.”
What is not clear is WHERE the newly added cards will be inserted - after the last reviewed New card ? Or at the end of the randomized list?

If you have 100 cards in random order then review the first 50, newly added cards are still given position 1-100, but as you’ve already reviewed the first 50 the newly added cards are more likely to appear earlier.
