Re-arranging stack order

I have a few stacks consisting of up to six X440-48p in a remote location that I need to configure. They are running with ExtremeXOS 15.3.3.5-patch1-10 and have a default script installed that activates stacking in auto mode, e.g.

configure stacking protocol standard
configure stacking priority 90
configure stacking slot-number automatic
enable stacking

A reboot is also included at the end of the default script. Now, with that config, after an "unconfigure switch all" all switches in the stack will be re-initalized and load the default config. This is fine, except for the fact that the slot numbers will be randomized. Assuming that I have someone to connect me to the current master: Can I re-number the switches to the order I want to have with

configure stacking slot 1 priority 50
configure stacking slot 2 priority 70
configure stacking slot 3 priority 90
configure stacking slot 4 priority 80
configure stacking slot 5 priority 40
configure stacking slot 6 priority 60
reboot

or do the new priority settings have no effect once a stack was formed? Alternatively, when does a

configure stacking node-address 00:04:96:ab:cd:ef slot-number 3

take effect? Immediately or after a reboot? I want to get this sorted out with as less help from local staff as possible, any input is appreciated.

configure stacking node-address 00:04:96:ab:cd:ef slot-number 3

Configure above command to manually configure slot number. This command will take effect after rebooting that specific slot using command "reboot node-address 00:04:96:ab:cd:ef"
