Would it be correct to assume a connection between those who used precancel envelopes and those using just stamps?

I would assume that users who decided to order precancel envelopes would NOT be the same people who used the stamps in most cases.

Generally the users of precancel envelopes were not users of precancel stamps. There is no comprehensive list of precancel users and their preferences available that I can find. Perhaps somewhere in the post office archives such a list exists. Local post masters were responsible for verifying that a user held a valid precancel permit before ordering stamps or envelopes.
