iPadOS Defer Software Update setting - a rolling window?

New Contributor II

Just prior to iPadOS 14 we configured the Defer Software Update setting under Mobile Devices > Configuration Profiles > Restrictions > Functionality for the full 90 days. As subsequent updates become available (e.g., we set it at 90 days for iPadOS 14 and within 90 days 14.1 was released) does the 90-day clock reset or does it stick with the original release date of iPadOS 14 for its restriction? In other words, is the setting of 1-90 days a rolling window that resets with each subsequent update or will no updates occur until we either shorten the window or the original 90 days from the iPadOS release date expire, at which point the latest update will install?
