create-t3-app next auth question

In the default auth settings for t3, I noticed id: token.sub in the callbacks making the id available on the user object. Is this sub something I can use as my unique user/account id in my db? What is sub?
export const authOptions: NextAuthOptions = {
callbacks: {
session: ({ session, token }) => ({
...session,
user: {
...session.user,
id: token.sub,
},
}),
},
export const authOptions: NextAuthOptions = {
callbacks: {
session: ({ session, token }) => ({
...session,
user: {
...session.user,
id: token.sub,
},
}),
},

So if someone signs in with apple, google, or custom credentials, they will all be given that unique id in sub that won't be changed unless I change it?

Im not sure what you are asking. A sign in using apple would be a new user even if a google account exists with the same email linked to it. If that is what you are asking

NextAuth has no way of know if a person in real life has multiple accounts on different services. Im not even sure how it would know that. That's why they are all distinct

i just wanted to make sure the sub would be unique and never change (other than by me) so that it would be ok to use that as the unique identifier for my users
