'SQL Log Backup' and 'Backup window'

I couldn't find an answer through search so I'm sorry if this has been asked before. When backing up a Windows Server with MS SQL server and Application aware processing enabled, how does Schedule > Backup window affect the SQL Log Backup. Does it ignore the window or obey it?

Whe have a job that backups a VM and also its SQL log with an interval of 240 mins through AWP. The window of this job restricts it to run during daytime but the SQL log job is basically always in running state. The end result of both jobs is always good, but looking at the timestamps it seems that the SQL log job is ignoring Backup window rules. Is this correct?

Hi, that`s correct. Backup window does not propagate to SQL logs backup.
