Launch clamp question

Question

I wonder if anybody knows why KSP stages launch clamps first before any engine. shouldn't they be staged second after the first stage engine(s) or staged with the first stage engines if the engines are solid fueled. Yes, I know I can rearrange the staging order but it get a little annoying to have to do that with every launch vehicle I've built.

I don't know. Sometimes they stage with your engines... and sometimes they get assigned to your Munar transfer stage.

So: game code, and relative to the other parts in your stage.

I think it's just how KSP handles any sort of decoupler, whether it's launch clamps or whatever. I like to stick my launch clamps up high because it keeps it above the CoM, and I just like how it looks. This always makes them stage somewhere in the middle of the sequence.

It seems the way it works is whenever you attach any decoupler, the game creates a new stage in the sequence below the stage of whatever the decouplers are attached to.
