Primary or Logical Partition for Over-Provisioning?

Should I create a Primary partition or a Logical partition for CSE Over-Provisioning?  Does it matter, if so can you please explain why? Right now my SSD first has hidden 500MB System Reserved, then c: Win10, and finally a hidden 800MB Recovery Partition.  All are Primary and I know I have to move the Recovery Partition to the left to create space for the new Over-Provisioning partition.  Thanks in advance.

Never used the feature and the documentation doesn't specify.  I can't imagine it matters.  The only advantage of a primary partition is you are allowed to boot from it.  The only reason logical partitions exist is there's a limit of 4 primaries.

Even if it does matter, you could just delete it and make it again?
