Which Office 2013 versions are not affected by Domain Group Policies

I'm trying to set things like default save and template locations, turn off Onedrive logins and so on from a domain-level group policy.
I have followed the procedure I used for Office 2010 and Office 2013 on other sites, but on one site these seem not to work.

I read a few threads saying some versions won't allow GPO management.

It doesn't appear to be an issue with a specific Office version (ProPlus, Home/Business, etc.), instead seems to be a bug in the OEM and / or Click to Run deployment code. Microsoft seems either unwilling or unable to fix the issue; based on this rather interesting verbiage from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179176.aspx:

“ Using Group Policy to manage Office 2013 is supported only in Office 365 ProPlus, in volume licensed versions of Office 2013, and in individual Office 2013 applications that are sold through retail stores or through volume licensing. “

Note that OEM installations are not present. Was yours pre-installed by your hardware vendor?

No these ones came with HP PCs but not pre-installed, they were boxes with redemption keys in which you had to go to setup.office.com or some such to install.
Then you got a download to install and a key.
I am trying to find out from the vendor. Certainly if they have to be individually managed any saving is worthless.

I have also tried a local policy on the machine, that does not work either...

Only Office 2013 Standard and Professional Plus support Group Policy.
Home & Student, Home & Business, and Professional do not. And this is by design.
