I would say it meets both.

> Just a question/clarification:
> 2.2.1 Timing Adjustable is normatively concerned with time
> limits/time-outs - usually taken in the context of pages that automatically
> log you out after a certain time, tests with a countdown timer, time-outs
> that happen behind the scenes that mean that a form submission/proceeding
> to the next step fails after a certain period of time.
> In the non-normative understanding document, examples are also given for
> auto-updating and auto-advancing/scrolling content.
> 2.2.2 Pause, Stop, Hide has normative text that specifically addresses
> scrolling and auto-updating content.
> Now, does this mean that auto-updating/scrolling content is subject to
> BOTH 2.2.1 and 2.2.2? I guess the answer is yes (as the SCs serve subtly
> different purposes/audiences). If so, 2.2.1's normative text requires that
> a user be able to turn off (e.g. pause/stop) this auto-updating/scrolling
> "time limit before encountering it".  Would a pause/stop button that's
> present pass this, as it's arguably not "before encountering it" but rather
> that mechanism is present right there where the time limit based
> auto-updating/scrolling is happening?
