The precision of the priority field in sitemap.xml is a value between 0.0 and 1.0, inclusive, with a value of 1.0 representing the highest priority and a value of 0.0 representing the lowest priority. The priority field is used to indicate to search engines the relative importance of each URL within the sitemap, with higher-priority URLs being crawled more frequently. However, it is important to note that the priority field is a suggestion only and that search engines may use it as one of many factors in determining the frequency of crawling for each URL.

The priority field in sitemap.xml is used to indicate the importance of a URL relative to other URLs in the same sitemap. The precision of the priority field is limited to one decimal place. This means that the precision is up to the tenths place, allowing values such as 0.0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, and so on, up to 1.0.

Yes, you are correct. The precision of the priority field in sitemap.xml is limited to one decimal place, allowing values from 0.0 to 1.0 with increments of 0.1.
