Kibana Audit Logs

Can anyone tell me if the kibana audit logs are also included in the security audit logs stored by opendistro when configuring elasticsearch.yml as per ?

X-pack documentation refers to kibana audit logs as a separate thing that need to be configured through kibana.yml ( Is it the same with opendistro? Are they also only sent to stdout by default?

Or can I set opendistro_security.audit.type directly in kibana.yml?

My end goal is to store all audit logs to an external store, either Azure blob storage or Azure Log Analytics. I thing I may be able to achieve that using a custom log4j appender for the elasticsearch logs but I need to know if I need to find a way to also do this for kibana.
