Hi! Glad to help :)

Rightfully, Unity converts the file format to its own format by default. By knowing that, it actually doesn't matter what format it is. Conclusively, Unity actually does not load such formats in the first place. Instead, Unity launches Maya or Max in the background and afterwards, export them to FBX.
