Correct. For complement:
Any mongolian suffix for noun is possible to follow any digits not only 
Arabic. Tibet or Mongolian digits like ᠑, ᠒, [U1810-U1819] etc. also 
Linguistically, Mongolian suffixes are considered not separated from 
word, which means just one word. Visually, the suffixes are joined to 
stem with a small space, in our case NNBSP. So, the suffixes should be 
started everywhere by medial variant.
