I'd say it's absolute wrt. to requiring permission from the release

The point of not allowing new features after a beta release is
that one wants to avoid getting untested new features into a release.
For that goal, it is not that relevant whether the new features
are guaranteed not to break any existing features - they still
don't get the testing that the beta releases try to achieve.
