Does "install from storage" under "Realme UI Recovery" (Official) keep user data?

Hi. After booting into the official "Realme UI Recovery", select language, we got 5 options

Install from storage
Online update (keep data)
Wipe data
Reboot
Power off

For option 1, since it does not mention if data will be wiped, may I confirm if user data will be kept or wiped? Thanks.

Just visited the service centre, they tried on their demo phone (another model) and found that "realme UI recovery" -> "wipe data" -> "wipe data (Retain contacts, messages and photos)" actually REMOVE ALL photos! I feel I am lucky that I didn't try it yesterday. Btw, they have no solution except clear all data. Really sad.
