Does Private IP network access contribute to overall network quota

For example, if I spin up a Nano container and I load it with mongodb, minio aws, mysql, etc… And I have other containers access it by its private IP, will it contribute to the total network quota?

The Network Transfer Quota doc sums this up perfectly:

The transfer quota only considers traffic on your Linodes’ public addresses. Traffic over the private network does not count against your monthly quota.

Your proposed setup should be all good to go without worry about transfer quota. Cool idea!
