Does continuous resistance (180 days rule) apply for PBS dependent ILR applications?

Currently waiting for a response from Home Office, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Home Office,

I was checking the Eligibility for ILR using this link.

It says continuous residence rule is applicable for PBS migrant. It does not says about continuous residence rule for the PBS dependent. So Does continuous resistance (180 days rule) apply for PBS dependent ILR applications?
