Z690 chipset: are there exclusions between M.2 and SATA ports?

I have a question for anyone that happens to have a Z690 motherboard. Do you have any exclusions between the standard SATA ports on your board and any of the chipset-attached M.2 slots?

I have the MSI Pro Z690-A DDR4. The user guide for it states pretty clearly which M.2 slots come from the Z690 chipset and which one comes off the CPU. There's no mention, however, of anything like...

"If you use SATA ports such and such, then it disables M.2 slot such and such" or vice versa.

I'm coming from Z170 and Z270 boards where mutual exclusions like this were common. I'm just wondering if these storage mutual exclusions are now a thing of the past or if my userguide is just poor and is omitting this information.
