That depends on the model of PicoPSU.

Some of them are strictly 12V, they just connect the input to the
12V rail.   Others have car and truck compatible input ranges.

I belive they use the color of the ATC connector to indicate
the input range.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
