Do Sigma ART lenses in Nikon mount have full electronic aperture control?

I was looking into differences between Canon's EF mount and Nikon's F mount and one difference was that most Nikon lenses use a physical lever on the camera mount to control the aperture. This is compared to Canon's EF mount which is 100% electronic with no moving parts on the mount.

I know on many Nikon G lenses they use the physical lever on the mount. But do 3rd party lenses, like the Sigma ART series, control aperture completely electronically or do they use a physical lever?

There are five more. The new Nikon 300 F/4 PF and, 200-500 F/5.6 also have electronic aperture control and let's not forget the three tilt/shift PC-E lenses.
