Does an more up to date MacAfee agent version get overwritten by a lower version through EPO

If a computer has a more up to date McAfee Agent installed locally, will a lower agent version overwrite it, if that lower version is getting pushed out via the EPO Client Task. For example - if our computer estate is imaged through a Windows deployment application, and packaged up as part of that image is McAfee agent 5.7.2. However our EPO is set to deploy agent 5.6.3, via a client task assignment, through the current branch. Will that then remove agent 5.7.2 and install 5.6.3 when the newly imaged computers pick up the EPO and client task assignment. Thanks

It will not install a lower version unless you are using forceinstall, which you should not be doing unless absolutely necessary.
