Yes, that's why it's last.

It's not independent though because there would be conflicts. It has to
be decided if it goes before of after the rest. Putting it last in the
series makes the order clear and makes it possible to revert it in case
it does break any users, without disrupting the rest of the series.

I assume that anyone choosing SLOB has a tiny embedded device which runs
only pre-flashed code, so that's less of an issue. If somebody can
trigger the issue remotely, there are likely also other ways to exhaust
the limited memory there?
