Yes.  The parser is first-match for each keyword.  From ssh_config(5):

     For each parameter, the first obtained value will be used.  The
     configuration files contain sections separated by Host
     and that section is only applied for hosts that match one of the
     given in the specification.  The matched host name is usually the
     given on the command line (see the CanonicalizeHostname option for

     Since the first obtained value for each parameter is used, more
     specific declarations should be given near the beginning of the
file, and
     general defaults at the end.

Then it'll get used.   It'll only report a jumphost loop if the host,
port and user are all end up all identical.
