scheduling of each facet in reversible notes

With the old Mental Case app it was said that it "schedules every combination of facets in a note independently." I believe this is supposed to be the case with the Studies app as well. But I am wondering if this is less complex than I had thought. Is it calculating entirely different scheduling, where for instance one facet might end up due to be studied in another week while the reverse facet might not be due to be studied again for two months? Or is it simply combining the success/failure rate of each facet studied to determine the next scheduling date, and then showing one facet on that date and the other facet the next day?

I ask because if you check card info for the next date scheduled for study you only get one date. If they do get entirely different scheduling, is the date shown for the first facet only (and the other facet scheduling info is simply not accessible), or is it for the next facet due to be studied out of all the facets on the note?

    I think I just answered my own question. By clicking on the Q in the top left corner of one facet in order to turn off its capability of being a 'prompt' , I was then able to see a different scheduling date when I clicked on info which was much later than what was shown before. When I re-clicked on the Q again to enable it a 'prompt', the scheduling went back to the earlier date. This shows me that the other facet wasn't due to be scheduled as a prompt until much later. But the only way I could see when exactly that is was to use this "trick" of turning off the prompt of each facet independently to see what the dates were for each. Anyway, I only use two faceted cards, so not a big deal.
     I had some cards that I realized I hadn't seen in quite a while and was wondering when they were due, and that's when the dilemma came to as to which scheduling I was seeing.

    Yes, you answered it yourself. It is truly independent scheduling, but that could get very complex with many different combinations, so in the info, we only show the next date of the whole note, i.e., the next up coming combination of facets.
