Yes. Tree conflicts are only flagged if a structural change is involved,
such as copy, move, add, or delete. Otherwise you get text conflicts,
given that conflicting changes were made to the file's content.

You can think of tree conflicts as happening at the level of the tree
structure. They regard file content only to find out if two files are
equal, to answer questions such as "does the file I am about to remove
look like what I expect to be removing?".

Text and property conflicts are only concerned with file content.
I.e. you will never see a tree conflict saying "edit vs. edit" on
files. Though "edit" is possible for directories meaning that
directory content was changed.
