They will assume that the expanded / collapsed state refers to the content after the button.

Subject: [WebAIM] Sequence Question

If a screen reader user encounters a button with aria-expanded="true" are they more likely to think that that button controls the content just before it in code order, or just after it in code order? This is without experimenting with the button and assumes that there is content both before and after the button, and that the button was not toggled to "true" by the user.
