[Buildroot] [OT] Using CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE _and_ initrd=<path>?

I've been experimenting with using both CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE at
kernel build time, and an initrd loaded by the boot loader. According
to the mnaual for systemrescuecd:
With the CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE option each kernel image contains
its own kernel modules. And the initram.igz only contains the
common boot scripts and programs which are used by all these
kernels. When a kernel boots, both the embedded initramfs and the
initram.igz are extracted into memory, then the kernel has all it
needs to boot.
The interesting part is this:
When a kernel boots, _both_the_embedded_initramfs_and_the_
initram.igz_ are extracted into memory
My experimentation seems to show otherwise, when
CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE is enabled in the kernel, the initrd loaded by
the bootloader into ram and passed to the kernel on the command-line
Can anybody confirm whether or not you're supposed to be able to use
both CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE _and_ an extra-kernel initrd?
