GHC options in Cabal

Looking at the latest Cabal docs, I see that in addition to ghc-options,
there are also ghc-prof-options and ghc-shared-options. What isn't clear
to me though from the docs is that are the latter two in addition to the
first, or are they a substitute for the first (for profiling/shared).

IOW, if I already have..
ghc-options: -O2

will the O2 also be applied to profiling build (say)? Or do I need an
extra explicit..
ghc-prof-options: -O2
