Application User Clearification

Just want to make sure I am understanding this correctly.  Is the Application User account the 'Run-as' account that my flow or application would use once it is moved into the production environment?

Your flow would use the Application User only if it configured to do so. Make sure the Application User configured is available to Prod environment. Else it wont work.
