Default Plugging wires in the mobo power panel incorrectly

Can a mobo be damaged if the power and led wires were plugged incorrectly in the mobo power panel? Like for example, the power wire was plugged in the power led pins and the reset button wire was plugged in the power button pins. Would this result to a mobo that powers up but doesn't boot?

I had plugged the wires incorrectly in my old mobo but it still works. I just don't know if all motherboards are tolerant to this newbie mistake.

I guess it wouldn't harm as it is sending an incorrect signal and maybe the motherboard will ignore the request. BTW i think the power will power up everything and when its off it stays on s1 state which consume almost no power.
