Premium ships are no different than others as far as ship XP is concerned. It is always counted as elite (convertible) XP. You can use doubloons to convert it but cannot use it for free.

You have to convert xp on a premium ship to 'free xp' with doubloons before you can use it to research things in other ship lines

Ok, I believe I need to get all the modules for the Tier VII Destroyer before I can move to Tier VIII Destroyer. The Tier VII Premium Destroyer Ship XP cannot be used to do this assuming it can only be used to go to the next Tier.

Premiums aren’t part of the tech tree.  Only ships in a line on the tree can use their XP to unlock the next ship up.  Premiums aren’t part of the lines.

Premium ships are outside the tech tree and do not research the next ship up.

Any XP that you earn on a ship is tied to that ship. If the ship has nothing left to research (like in the case of elite ships or premium ships) you can use doubloons to convert the XP on that ship to free XP, which you can use to research any ship.

Read this. It's an older thread but still accurate.

If it is a tech tree DD, you need to have the modules in the path to the next ship researched, they don’t need to be purchased. You follow the arrows in the module screen to know what has to be researched. Premium ships, I.e. Leningrad, are not in a line and can not unlock another ship directly.  As other posters have stated, you can convert Premium ship XP to Free xp using doubloons and then use that Free XP to unlock the ship.
