Pre-Boarding "Attendant" Question

Explorer C


     So, I have a question regarding pre-boarding. Does anyone know if there is a restriction on where I sit on the plane if I am helping someone who is pre-boarding? 

I have someone on my flight tomorrow morning that has a scooter and needs help with their luggage. After I help them put the stuff in the overhead bin, am I allowed to sit anywhere (including the exit row) since I am technically not a pre-boarder but considered an "Attendant"?

I'm not sure if anyone know the answer or not, but any help would be appreciated! 

Thanks so much!

Any time you board during the preboarding group - whether you are the one who needs assistance or you are the one providing assistance - you are NOT permitted to sit in the exit row.

Thanks! That's what I thought, but just wanted to make sure!
