Increasing before and after markers on circular needles

I have a raglan sweater pattern that I am knitting from the top down ( sweater pattern generator)

I have knitted the collar but it says at each side of marker, increase 1 st by knitting into the front and back of the st..

I have 4 markers - one for the sleeves, one for the back, one for the other sleeve and one for the front, so by increasing into the back and front of each st. that would make an increase of 8 sts..

Does it matter which marker you start to increase at?

Awaiting your reply,

No. It is immaterial which point you choose as a starting point.
