How does Pipelines interact with Mercurial bookmarks?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Configure bitbucket-pipelines.yml

In particular, what happens if I have multiple bookmarks on the same named branch?  Does Pipelines treat that like multiple branches or one branch?

Pipelines won't build any bookmarks. It will only build the named branches in your repository. If there is a single branch with multiple bookmarks it will be built as if it had no bookmarks on the branch.

Thank you.  Unfortunately, since I use bookmarks in the same way as a Git user would use (Git) branches, this is simply not workable for me, so I will not be able to use Pipelines.

Sometime since this question was asked and answered, an option to trigger pipelines based on bookmark names was added:
