Thermistor wiring

Can someone confirm for me the the two orage wires in the fourway connector with 2 oragne and 2 red wires are the thermistor. Does polarity matter?

That leaves two sets of red / black wires for fans, yes?

On a 2.1 Buddaschnozzle the thermistor is Orange. Polarity doesn’t matter. Here’s the Thermistor swap out guide.

The hexagon on the TAZ 5 is a bit different.
