Overlay coding error, please help

Can anyone tell me why when I code this-

INT. SERVANT KITCHEN OL - DAY
@cut to zone 2

&ovl PHONE SIDE create
&ovl PHONE SIDE opacity 1

The phone overlay is behind the in-built table overlay no matter how many layers I increase.

And when I do this-

INT. SERVANT KITCHEN OL - DAY with PHONE SIDE
@cut to zone 2

The in-built overlay just doesn’t show?

Whenever there’s a built-in overlay with the said background, I believe it’s at the maxed level of layer so no matter what you try to do with a different overlay it’ll always be in the back/behind it

To say the least it’s very confusing when backgrounds have built-in overlays for this exact reason, I usually make the overlay myself and upload it so I can use it as a regular overlay :face_holding_back_tears:
