Need Confirmation from a CCP Employee

I have been away for a 2 week stint in a "re-education camp", and have not been able to ask the question.
The various posts allude to this being a mistake in the patch notes, but I would like some confirmation.

The patch notes say "Mission and belt NPCs have been given an AI upgrade. Please see this devblog for details.".
The line above makes no mention of plexes using the altered AI.

Now, the dev blog has said for months that null sec plexes would also be subjected to the AI changes (null sec plex structures being the exception.)

But if you take that line from the patch notes verbatim, it infers that all plexes, high, low and null, are exempt from the new AI.

So I would like a CCP employee to confirm, one way or the other, if plexes were made exempt from the new AI.

Sorry, as a high sec player, I am clearly too stupid to understand something as difficult as scanning down plexes.
I was really hoping a CCP employee would take pity on yet another dumb sheep high sec player and just tell me.

These forums just weren't the same without your inane daily whine threads about every topic from AI changes to suicide ganks, I almost missed reading your posts.

In answer, I honestly cannot speak about scannable plexes and signatures, but anomalies have definitely been upgraded to the new AI.

If you are asking specifically about 10/10 sites with ubber towers/etc, they alluded to leaving those as was pre patch, since they needed considerable balancing work before they could be made to work with the new AI. Don't take that as given, but that was the pre patch implications.

Yes, I am aware that anomalies, belt rats, and mission rats have been subjected to the new AI.
I made that point in the OP.

The confirmation I asked for is the precise thing you just stated you can't confirm.
But thanks for partaking in this thread.

Unfortunately, that is precisely why I am asking.
It is implied in the patch notes, but not specific.

Hence my request for confirmation from CCP.
The only thing I know for certain that happened with the high end plexes was that the towers did not have the AI implemented, since Fox Four stated that months ago.
