Does Auto Recovery Save Open smart objects?

I was working on a file, and was editing the contents of a smart object when I had a crash. The smart object document was open long enough for auto recovery to have backed it up, and it recovered all of the other documents, but not the smart object document that I was working on and needed. Does auto recover only save the parent document?

Auto recovery saves all the open documents.
But it will not remember the parent-child relationship, so you may need to replace the contents of the SO in the parent with the recovered child if you had unsaved changes to the child document.
