I try to dig through the numpy source code to pinning point the overriding/monkey patching/decorating code snippets, as follows:
$ rg -A5 -uu 'def __invert__' .
./numpy/__init__.pyi
2022: def __invert__(self: NDArray[bool_]) -> NDArray[bool_]: ...

514- if self.dtype not in _integer_or_boolean_dtypes:

./numpy/lib/user_array.py
179: def __invert__(self):
180- return self._rc(invert(self.array))

Which is corresponding to the overriding mentioned above by you?

Implicit cast happens here automatically.

Thank you for stressing the point again.
