Which FFL/DFL does SharePoint 2013 support, i.e. can I raise the FFL/DFL from 2008R2 to 2016 without making changes (extra patches/updates) to our existing SharePoint 2013?

Hello Everyone,

Got a quick question as we are planning to raise install DC 2016 and raise (once all DC 2008R2 gone) FFL/DFL to 2016.  
Which FFL/DFL does SharePoint 2013 support, i.e. can I raise the FFL/DFL from 2008R2 to 2016 without making a change to the existing SharePoint 2013 --> 15.0.4841.1000 server (2012R2)?
For example, we have Exchange 2013 CU14 Build 15.00.1236.003 and the only requirement to run under 2016 AD is SP1 which was released in version CU4 Build 15.00.0847.032 so based on this matrix (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff728623(v=exchg.150).aspx) we don't have to worry about updating Exchange (just for this reason) right now.
I am trying to find a similar matrix for SharePoint 2013.
Configuration database version: 15.0.4841.1000
Thanks again for any/all insights and suggestions.

Yes, 2016 FFL/DFL is supported and you won't need any specific patch for this

Thanks Shaun... appreciate that... any chance you might have a tech article link in case I have to show documentation to PMO? Cheers :-)
