System Center Configuration Manager - ADR Deadline Question

Running the latest version of SCCM.  Very simple question about ADR (Automatic Deployment Rules), but can't find the answer on-line, and not close to a lab environment to test.

When configuring an ADR to deploy patches, does the deadline date (in number of days) begin counting after the available date, or after the evaluation date?

For example, let's say it's Sunday.  I set up an ADR and run an evaluation on Sunday evening, at 8 pm.  I configure the ADR available date for 1 day.  This means that the patches are available on Monday, at 8pm.  I also configure the deadline date for 6 days.

Does the 6 days begin counting from the available date, which is Monday?  Or does it begin from the evaluation date, which is Sunday?

Thanks for you input!

You can run the ADR on a schedule or after a WSUS sync, so that will play into the answer, in general it starts from the available date.  You can test this by creating a ADR and pointing it at an empty collection and check the available/deadline times in the SUG it creates.
