Does AWS Cloudfront actually speed up the delivery of map data content from ArcGIS Online?

We have a very simplistic static single page web app hosted out of AWS S3. The entire web app code is less than 1MB in size.

The app loads a web map and services all hosted in ArcGIS Online.

My question is around whether using AWS CloudFront will make any difference at all for the content delivered from ArcGIS Online?

My understanding is no, it will not, because that content streams direct from ArcGIS Online to the browser completely independent of the static website files and nothing to do with CloudFront. Only the ~1MB web app code is delivered via CloudFront. Can someone confirm whether that understanding is correct?
