Yes, the unit is build from devices in the pool.
But if it can't be built, then 25% of devices should show up in unit as 'emergency mobilisation' (free, not taken from pool).
This works for the non-disabled devices, but disabled devices get cleared out before the 25% calculation happens if there aren't enough devices in the pool. [The clearing out is from original WITP. However, the method used to work out the number of devices was changed for AE around build 1108. Should not be there now.]
For non-disabled devices in the unit, if there are not enough in the pool, the difference will be built and added to the pool. If there is still not enough in the pool, then the unit gets 25% of the active devices as above.
With disabled devices in the unit, if the devices exist in the pool, then the disabled number is put in the unit and removed from the pool. Else unit get 25% of the disabled number as above.
After updated beta:
Note that you will only get the full disabled number if that many exists in the device pool. I would think in most cases you will usually only get the 25% unless you have been building lots of the required devices.
