Does the Oribi 970 support DHCP Option 61

Hi, im considering purchasing the Orbi 970 system to work with my Sky broadband in the UK. I understand it can only work with sky broadband is DHCP option 61 is supported by the router - can anyone please confirm this? The page below has not been updated since 2021. Cheers

I see it appeared on the 750/850 series:

I haven't looked at mine lately as I normally don't use this feature. I'll check again later today and confirm for the 970 series to be sure. 

I know that KB needs to be updated as well to reflect other models that support this feature.
