Does preventative maintenace help secondaries survive?

So the PM description says: "Reduces the risk of main turrets, torpedo tubes, steering gears, and engine becoming incapacitated" and the details say "Risk of modules becoming incapacitated -30%" but I still see people take this for their secondary batteries/AA guns. I've looked this up to get clarification and came across multiple older articles: here, here, and here that state that the secondary batteries/AA guns are not modulus and therefore don't get "incapacitated" they get destroyed and thus PM does not effect them. However, I still see people take it on secondary BB's for this purpose as recently as today in Sea Lord Mounbatten's video (see timestamp 8:24) and also asked on a Discord server where people swore that they have less secondaries/AA mounts go out when they have this skill but that seems to be hard to determine for certain without testing. So I was wondering if anyone can clarify/knows for certain?  Thanks.

PM has never affected AA mounts or secondary guns, as they are either destroyed or active - never “incapacitated.” The in-game description is fully inclusive and accurate.

No it does not. There is a module that increases the HP for secondaries and AA. PM only prevents incapacitations on the systems it lists. AA and secondaries cannot be incapacitated, they are either working or destroyed.

If you look into the wiki article, it says that secondaries are indeed modules, but they can only be destroyed, not incapitated

Therefore, the risk of incapacitation appears to be not applicable to secondary turrets as they can only be destroyed

No. Trust the wiki rather than reddit.

Boomer has the reason why PM doesn't do that.

@Sea_Lord_Mountbatten...although PM is a good skill to take in conjunction w/a 2ndary build (as you will probably be going into harm's way)...thought you might like to be tagged in here so you're not unintentionally misleading your followers into thinking the skill is providing a benefit it isn't :-)
