[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Are ASpace-created ref IDs unique?

We are considering using the component ref IDs in ASpace as a unique ID outside of the system (to link up with our digitized collections and other metadata repos). However, we're not sure that they are unique across all resources in our instance of ASpace. We found some cases where two different archival object had the same ref ID. They are of the type that migrated in from Archivist's Toolkit (example: ref118_up1) so it may be a legacy issue, but I wanted to confirm with someone who knows that the ASpace created ref IDs are going to be unique across our whole instance of ASpace.
