Travel adjustment on Rockshox forks?

Hi all,
I'm looking at the internal travel adjustment for Rockshox forks, where there's a bushing that can be added/removed for setting up the fork. And the part that I can't figure out is if the adjustment is on the "upper " end or the "lower" end.

Will a fork set for 80 mm travel have the same axle-to-crown as a 100 mm, but bottom out faster?

Or will a fork set for 80 mm travel have 20 mm less axle-to-crown as a 100 mm, and hit full extension faster?

(the above assuming that pressures and sag are set up correctly for both forks)
