EAD automatic extension to 180 days

I-140 EAD rule which is coming on Jan 17, 2017 also include a "EAD automatic extension of 180 days". This rule automatically extend the EAD for 180 days beyond the expiry date if the renewal is filed before expiry date. My question is if any one has filed for renewal before their expiry date and before Jan 17, 2017, do they also get the benefit of this rule after Jan 17, 2017 if it is still pending?
