No - the boot priority is set by Rockchip and is SPI, eMMC, SDcard (see here, there is no reason to expect the RK3399s is any different.)

But Yes - if/when you have Tow-boot on the SPI, then Tow-boot is the first thing to boot (currently indicated by a red light on PPP). However Tow-boot ambition in life is to find an OS, it's default is the eMMC but if you are holding Volume Down then it will try the SDcard first.

Holding volume up  for turning the phone into a usb mass storage device exposing the eMMC is also a nice addition.
(even if it is quite slow)
