Minecraft – Strongholds seems to spawn under villages


So I've been doing some speedrunning in Minecraft Bedrock, and I have some certain clues on where strongholds could be after playing for a while.

"If you get to the closest village 700+ blocks away from spawn, there's a chance that when you throw an eye, it will go directly under the village."

Yep, it seems like Bedrock Edition's villages have a good chance of having a stronghold under it, and I have no ideas why this is so, as I am using a phone to play the game, and I don't know how to access the in-game code.

So is there some script on strongholds to naturally spawn under villages?

There is a 1/10 chance that a stronghold will be under a village. Edit: to clarify: I do not know if this statistic is still accurate. I see no reason why it wouldn’t be still.
