The above states we can run only a subset of models via
dbt run --models path/to/models
Let us take a use case where we have a file
path/to/models/a.sql such that there is a
ref function in it that references the output of
b.sql is situated anywhere outside the folder
In such a situation will
b.sql execute too when
dbt run --models path/to/models runs?
Because intuitively it should run as we expect the latest data from the mentioned dependencies (through ref).
