Multiple Site AD Structure and FSMO Roles

I have a domain that has multiple sites, each with a domain controller.  Do the FSMO rules still apply even though there are multiple sites for 'one per domain' and 'one per forest', or does each site get the FSMO roles.  Can anyone backup their claim with a URL?

Two forest wide FSMO roles = Domain Naming Master and Schema Master
Three Domain wide FSMO roles = RID Master, PDC Emulator, and Infrastructure Master
That is true on any AD implementation in the world.
