Is it possible to have both elite and non-elite units in custom scenario?

Hi! I find that if I place both a non-elite and an elite version of the same unit in the editor, the non-elite one will become elite when I play the game. As a comparison, if i place only the non-elite unit in the editor, the unit stays unchanged in game mode.

I wonder if it is possible to have both non-elite and elite units coexist?
