Does vcenter reuse mac addresses?

We are using vsphere 6.5.

After a VM is deleted from vcenter, will that mac address get reused if a new VM is created?

Is there documentation on this ?

Thanks

Tom

As far as I know we can't use unless you need to manually assign the previous used MAC address to new VM. But it's not recommended because of MAC address conflict. Here is the KB for more understating about. VMware Knowledge Base  Duplicate MAC Addresses of Virtual Machines on the Same Network
