X-Kong prefixed headers removal

We are writing a plugin gor kong that sets some headers using kong.service.set_header function

Headers are prefixed with X-Kong

But, the security of headers are important, I have done some tests and saw tgat kong is removing these headers from request, I want to know that if I can trust Kong to remove X-Kong prefixed headers or not?

Because I’m having some states when my plugin is not setting headers that this is where It’s getting important
