Does the velocity of VEX V5 Motors (in percent on VCS/Vexcode) refer to desired or actual velocity?

When using the getter function Motor.velocity(vex::velocityUnits::pct), does it return the absolute velocity of the motor axle (even if this is different from the desired velocity in Motor.setVelocity)?

Does this mean that it is possible for this to return a percentage value greater than 100?
Thanks, and please refer me to any documentation I should have checked first :sweat_smile:


It returns the current velocity in percentage so -100 to 100, no matter what the target velocity is. Also there is documentation here.
