Does EX8000 offer Tri-band (2.4/5.0-1/5.0-2) is extender mode or only the 2.4 & 5.0 band

Does the EX8000 offer true tri-bands in extender mode (2.4G/5.0G-1/5.0G-2) or only 2.4G and a selection of either 5.0G-1 or 5.0G-2 for a backhaul?

 

It seems like AP mode offers all three band but extender mode offered only 2 bands.   Is this right?

There is no Netgear sales here (wild guess).

 

In extender mode, the 5 GHz 4x4 radio is used to establish the backhaul connection to the primary router 5 GHz network, only the 5 GHz 2x2 and the 2.4 GHz are serving as access points to allow the association with wireless clients - this is what Netgear does promote as FastLane3 technology.

 

In AP mode, all three radios can serve for associating wireless clients.

What is the answer?  Cannot NEtGEAR Sales answer this simple question?

 

This seems like a simple question.
