Do amines have priority over double or triple bonds?

I think what they are trying to say is talking about naming priority, as in, which name comes first. In this case, amines come first so in a molecule like Butanamine, and you have a double bond, the amine would have priority in the naming, and the double bond would be left out. Please correct me if this is a wrong interpretation.
