Are attribute index and spatial index managed automatically in File GDB or SDE database?

as the topic, I'm wondering, if I using append tool to append new features to a feature class that has spatial index and attribute index created, do I have need to rebuild the spatial index and the attribute index?


The help doc for spatial index  said "By default, ArcGIS creates and maintains a spatial index for geodatabase feature classes.".  and the help doc for attribute index said "Each time you edit the feature class, ArcGIS must also update the indexes.

So does that mean after run the appending tool I don't need rebuild the spatial index but do need rebuilt the attribute index?
