When are environment default attributes available to nodes

If I bootstrap a node with a -E option, are the attributes in the default_attributes block available for cookbooks to use immediately, or are they only part of the node “after” as successful bootstrap?

They're available on the run, the node object is made from ohai, Env attributes, roles attributes and cookbooks files attributes just before compile time.

For the chef run workshop

And here https://docs.chef.io/attributes.html#attribute-sources for the merge and precedence levels schema
