TPT Number of instances vs load tasks

Hi - If a TPT job uses 2 LOAD operator instances, will it use 2 load tasks on the Teradata side? I am trying to understand the relationship between instances and load tasks slots.

Sessions from parallel instances of a LOAD operator definition will all have the same LSN and will be treated as a single load task on the database side. Instances provide parallel "threads" on the client side.
