Empty list vs field not present

Is there anywhere in the API that a field being missing is not equivalent
to an empty list?

As an example, is it generally true that

{ "some_object" : []
, "title" : "title" }

is equivalent to

{ "title" : "title" }

as far as elastic search is concerned?

Hi Liam,

Both documents would indeed be indexed the same way (except the _source
field).
