I would imagine it would be otherwise it would make sense having an SSD.

I think it depends upon the size of the SSD/NVMe drive.  If it is 128gb or greater, then yes.  If it is one of the configurations with a 32gb SSD/NVMe drive, then my guess is that they're using the drive as some sort of cache drive for speeding up the system.  Personally, I would always want a system that boots from a SSD or NVMe drive as it makes them so much faster.  I would also recommend at a minimum to get at 256gb drive.
