"Considered" and "used" are two different things.

The two examples you give have the same estimated cost (within two
decimal places) so the planner sees no particular reason to choose one
over the other.

I surmise that you are testing on toy tables and extrapolating to what
will happen on larger tables.  This is an unjustified assumption.
Create a realistic test data set, ANALYZE it, and then see if the
planner chooses indexes you like.
