configuration of pam system-auth file

The /etc/pam.d/system-auth has a line at the top when you install fedora by default before you make any changes to system-auth:
Code:
#%PAM-1.0
Does this line have to be the first line or is this really just a comment?
What I want to know is if a problem occurs if someone accidentally puts a rule line in like this before the #%PAM-1.0 tag

Code:
auth        required      pam_env.so
#%PAM-1.0
# This file is auto-generated.
# User changes will be destroyed the next time authconfig is run.
auth        sufficient    pam_unix.so nullok try_first_pass
auth        requisite     pam_succeed_if.so uid >= 1000 quiet_success
auth        required      pam_deny.so
instead of the usual, expected format which is:

Code:
#%PAM-1.0
# This file is auto-generated.
# User changes will be destroyed the next time authconfig is run.
auth        required      pam_env.so
auth        sufficient    pam_unix.so nullok try_first_pass
auth        requisite     pam_succeed_if.so uid >= 1000 quiet_success
auth        required      pam_deny.so
