Is Transplanted hair DhT sensitive when moved?

May I take the opportunity to ask you: once a hair is transplanted from the donor area to the crown/top of the head, does its follicle become a “crown/top” follicle in its identity and sensitivity to DHT? Because I know for sure that the post-transplant therapy includes in most cases (if not always) finasteride and minoxidil. Thank you.

No, the hair that is transplants from the donor area keeps its genetic identify so it is not DHT responsive
