Status transition query question

I am trying to use the JQL built-in queries to determine when an issue moved from one state to another.  In my instance of JIRA, an issue can exist in any of 5 states:  A, B, C, D, E.  The workflow does not enforce a particular order, i.e, an issue can go to status A and then B and then D or A ->B -> C -> D, for example. If I used the delivered JQL query of 'Status was A and Status is B' without adding any date quantifier, will the query return all issues that went from A -> B directly, or will it return any queries that had a state of A before it had a state of B regardless of how many states it went through to get from A to B?

This query: status WAS "Status A" AND status = "Status B"

Returns: All issues that have been in "Status A" at least once before and are CURRENTLY in "Status B".
