Question 2 RAM sticks on a Quad Channel board, do they switch to Dual Channel?

Hi,
Chipsets like X399 support Quad Channel Memory. The motherboard manual specifies which slots to use if you have just 1 or 2 RAM sticks.
For example



So if I install only 2 RAM sticks in the two respective channels on a Quad Channel board, do they automatically switch to Dual Channel Config?
I am just trying to understand the way it would work, I am aware that to ensure Dual or Quad channel it's best to buy RAM as a kit.

Thanks.
