Default Neodymium Magnets

I see where magnets are used for holding hatches, doors and other things shut. I bought Neodymium magnets from Michaels craft store, 1/4" X 6.3MM high, they are quite strong for their size, warning on package says they can cause malfunction in medical devices, pacemakers, defibrillators and so on. Does any one know if they can interfere with ignition modules, kill switches and servos in close proximity to magnets. I know little about them and their types.

Thank you in advance.

I used neo magnets to hold the windows on m Miss and had no problems with the servos, which were only an inch or so away. I've never used them real close or in contact though.

I think the MOVEMENT of the magnetic field would be where the issue would lie. My guess, given the nature of magnetic fields, inductance, and stuff like that
