Yes, which is why even after 15 years and still not remembering to switch
the manual switch off when going down to 2nd or 1st, I devised a lockout
circuit.  This locks out the OD preventing it operating even in 3rd or 4th,
if one moves from an OD gear to a non-OD gear, until one moves the manual
switch off and on again.  This does have a light, but that warns it is
locked out, not in an OD gear.  See and click on 'Overdrive
Sequencer Relay'.

Having the OD engage just after one has gone into 3rd isn't harmful,
although it is rarely a good ration to be in so one gets the thump when
switching it back out again as well as the unexpected thump when it cut in.
