Pylon tech battery sizing guide

Its not clear if the the Victron guide https://www.victronenergy.com/live/battery_compatibility:pylontech_phantom#minimum_battery_sizing_recommendations applies both to the US 2000 and US 3000 models . The US3000 model is 50% larger yet it seems from the guide that the minimum number of modules are same for both US2000/3000. The article title says US 2000 / 3000 however the paragraph showing the minimum battery size only mentions the US 2000 model

Up to 8 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 190.8 MiB each and 286.6 MiB total.

The guide seems to be written around US2000’s, and their quantities mostly derived from the pylontech current limit of 50% I believe. Therefore 4 x US2000 would be the rough equivalent of 3 x US3000

There was a post elsewhere on this forum where a guy had issues with 3 x 3500 Pylontechs on a 5000 Quattro . The solution said that he must have a minimum of 4 units are per the guide -see https://community.victronenergy.com/questions/32479/quatro-5000-and-three-us300b-pylontechs.html Has the 3500 Pylontech been signed off as approved by Victron then with with 3 or 4 units for a 5000 Multiplus/Quattro.
