I don't understand how the build-bots would be aware of this detail.
Unless you explicitly state what the dependencies are, how would the
build-bots know? Perhaps there's some logic built-in somewhere that I
don't know about?

No. This strikes me as a strange argument. I'm pointing out a potential
source of problems and you just brush it aside claiming that it's not
true, or even if it was true that we'll see eventually and we can fix it
up when there's an actual problem.
Why would you want to have to fix things up if you can avoid breakage in
the first place by being a little proactive?
