In general, and for most distortion pedals, when 2 or 3 band eq are availible, is the eq boost at zero when the knobs are at 12 o'clock?

Does that mean if you turn any eq knob to 7 o'clock it is cutting the frequency the knob states (high,low,mid)?

Or do the eq knobs only BOOST the frequencies?

Let me know if this makes sense.
In general you can assume that 12 o'clock is somewhat neutral. But not always. I used to have a Bad Monkey and you had to go higher on the treble (High knob) to get neutral. I don't think any are neutral at zero.
