I disagree. In turn means one is tried, then if that fails the next is tried. There is no implication at all that the order they are tried in is the order specified.

It would not hurt anything to say they were tried in turn accords to RTT, but as it stands the documentation doesn’t say what you think it says.

Again, "in turn" doesn’t mean "in the order I expect" it simply means one after another until all are checked (or one succeeds).
